Fashion Lawyer: Staci Riordan has always proudly owned her fashion lineage and identity. A daughter from a long line of apparel manufacturers who also gained hands on experience as an apparel executive and professor, Staci knew she would one day practice “Fashion Law.” Despite being encouraged to try other practice areas because “Fashion Law” was unheard of and laughable at best, Staci stayed on course to obtain her Juris Doctorate degree, from Loyola Law School of Los Angeles, so she could practice fashion law. Today, she is the Leader of the Fashion Practice at Nixon Peabody.

Educator: Staci also speared headed the launch the Fashion Law Project at Loyola Law School, where she is presently its Executive Director and also teaches Fashion Law and runs its Fashion Law Clinic as well as its Fashion Law Summer Intensive.

Board Member: Staci serves on several boards, on both a voluntary and professional basis, such as Swet Tailor, California Fashion Association and Fashion Group International, Inc.

Professional mom: Being a successful lawyer has also not changed Staci’s other identity as the Chief Executive Mommy & Wife, at home, to two beautiful kids, a wonderful husband and two rescue dogs. Staci, however, understands the very difficult challenge of juggling all her many roles, something millions of women in America do daily. Staci is passionate about sharing tips with entrepreneur moms and other professionals who do “The Juggle,” daily.

Speaker: Staci uses her inspiring story to help guide many to follow their passion, find balance, be happy and be successful at what they do.  She is also a frequent panelist on a wide variety of fashion, branding and motivational topics.
