Theodora Oringher is committed to attracting, recruiting, mentoring, and promoting diverse attorneys and staff. We recognize that diversity of culture and thought create a dynamic work environment, reflect our communities, and reap better results for our clients.

A dedication to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion is an embedded part of Theodora Oringher’s core values. This commitment is reflected in the firm’s hiring, retention, and commitment to the professional success of all our attorneys. The firm recognizes that career advancement does not happen in a vacuum, but requires initiative and forethought in creating an environment where diverse attorneys can flourish. Our goal is to create a law firm that reflects the diversity of the clients and communities we serve. We recognize that, by bringing together lawyers of diverse backgrounds, we can capitalize on our unique experiences and perspectives to provide the most effective representation to our clients.

The firm’s commitment to diversity is not confined to the office hallways. Theodora Oringher attorneys dedicate their time and talents to promoting diversity in the legal profession through their involvement in diversity-related professional organizations and bar organizations. These organizations include the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles, the Hispanic Bar Association, the Iranian-American Bar Association, and the South Asian Bar Association. Theodora Oringher has also provided sponsorship to organizations dedicated to the success of women and minority attorneys, including the Corporate Counsel Women of Color, the Minority Corporate Counsel Association, and the National Employment Law Counsel.




The work of becoming a truly diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace is ever-evolving. This is why Theodora Oringher has a Diversity Leadership Committee composed of attorneys that oversee the firm’s efforts to recruit and retain diverse lawyers and profession staff and create an inclusive environment that enables all employees to succeed. The Diversity Leadership Committee also partners with clients and the industry members on innovative diversity and inclusion programming.
