WOMEN'S BUSINESS GROUP

As the regional representative of an organization aimed at helping women succeed in business, Emily McHugh, working in tandem with her regional counterparts, mobilized the Women’s Business Enterprise Council of Florida into immediate action when the coronavirus pandemic hit.

The council created new virtual programs, professional training and high-level business networking opportunities for the women it serves. One of the most popular programs is its WBEC Window on Wednesdays, in which women attend via Zoom to hear programs presented by corporate partners, women business owners and to participate in specialized workshops.

During non-pandemic times, WBEC Florida normally would host regional meet-ups in person. But instead, the meet-ups take place virtually online and still offer the opportunity to connect and socialize.

WBEC Florida is the regional partner organization for WBENC, the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council headquartered in Washington, D.C. WBENC is the largest third-party certifier of women-owned businesses in the country. The mission of WBEC Florida is to certify, champion and collaborate with women in business to create access to opportunities and ensure success. Women can register at no cost for WBEC events at www.WBECFlorida.org

“I believe in personally reaching out to clients and speaking to them to find out what they need and how I can best assist them to accomplish their goal,” says McHugh, who lives in Fort Pierce. “People want to be heard and know that there is someone who is willing to listen and respond with real solutions.”

McHugh is the author of The Little Girl’s Guide to Entrepreneurship and has developed business strategy workshops for WBEC Florida on topics such as negotiations and having courageous conversations. Outside her work for for the WBEC, she is an accomplished violinist who has played the National Anthem for the New York Mets during spring training.

INJURY LAW

Gloria Seidule

STEVE MARTINE

Gloria Seidule is a lawyer who continues to beat the odds and achieve goals for her clients because she believes in them and their cause.

“I graduated from the University of Florida and knew immediately that I wanted to represent people who needed help after personal tragedy hit their life,’’ she says. “For more than 30 years I have been proudly representing people whose lives were forever changed due to the negligence of others.’’

Seidule early in her career through the present has obtained multi-million dollar verdicts for her clients. Active in the Florida Justice Association and a co-founder of the Treasure Coast Justice Association, Seidule has been recognized with the highest rating possible for ethics with “AV” by Martindale Hubbell. She also has achieved “Super Lawyer Status” in medical malpractice and has been given the “Hastings Award” by fellow personal injury lawyers on the Treasure Coast for her commitment to justice for the people.

She is one of the few lawyers in the country with legal expertise in Infectious disease law, including the legal aspects of infection control. This enabled her to create a coronavirus video series that assisted companies to recognize and react to the epidemic when it first occurred from a legal standpoint. She also has pioneered lawsuits against corporations and governmental entities for liability for the sexual abuse of children, such as in schools, private daycares, churches and other organizations.

“My clients come first. I sincerely work as a personal injury lawyer with the goal of helping others in their time of need,’’ she says. “I believe in our system of justice, and I am proud to be a lawyer.”

Entering law school in 1984, Seidule was also one of the first women in the field of personal injury law. “At the time, women in law were considered to be more suited to divorce work and appellate work,’’ she says. “Never trial law. I helped push that barrier aside for other women to be accepted for their talents in trial work, representing people in front of juries, and achieving justice. While doing so, I raised two children who are now University of Florida graduates with master degrees and contributing to society by also helping others. Back then, it was a goal of proving women could ‘have it all,’ meaning work, children, families and personal fulfillment.

This was a new concept that has now become part of the fabric of law. I would like to think I helped open the door for the generations of women to come in the trial practice of law.’’
