Ms. Riddle is a member of Kasowitz’s Women’s Initiatives Committee and also mentors diverse attorneys within and outside of the firm.

Connecticut Department of Income Maintenance), Senator Lieberman’s Senate Chief of Staff, and a Connecticut Superior Court Judge, Connecticut’s highest trial court.
