Hogan Lovells attorney April Wimberley began creating her own destiny at a young age, applying to college on her own initiative and being the first one in her family to get a college degree. She credits the encouragement of female friends and colleagues for her decision to take her education a step further and attend law school. After taking time away from the paid workforce to raise a family, April has successfully re-entered it, a feat that unfortunately eludes many. And throughout her career journey, April used her legal skills for good, fighting for the rights of prisoners who have no voice.
