Lorelie Masters was featured on the cover of 2015 Super Lawyers of Washington, D.C., in an article titled “Masters of the Insurance Universe.” Masters, a partner at Perkins Coie, is known as an expert in the field of insurance litigation, an area that she has practiced in since the mid- 1980s. In addition to the hours devoted to her successful practice, Masters spends after hours in her role as a social activist: advocating for pay equity for women, human-trafficking laws, voting rights and other issues. This past year Masters declared her candidacy to become the first elected attorney general in the District simply because “the race … needed to include women’s voices.”
