|Sandy is one busy person and very much in demand.
She juggles her roles as the Chair of the Board of Directors of the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, the Vice Chair and Treasurer of the Pacific Asian Consortium in Employment, Co-Chair of the Executive Advisory Council of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center of Southern California, a mother of three lovely young women, a super lawyer at Lim Ruger, etc. Somehow, Sandy successfully and effectively tackles every project she commits to. For those of us mere mortals who have a hard time simply dealing with the demands of just one job, Sandy is truly an inspiration. Perhaps, her secret is her boundless energy.
|As a pioneering woman attorney, Sandy has experienced first hand how the role of women in the legal profession has evolved in the past 20 plus years. With her years of experience and sensitivity to the challenges faced by women in the legal profession, Sandy is a fantastic role model for young women attorneys. Young attorneys are lucky that Sandy is an accessible and willing mentor. Sandy began her legal career in the early 1980s and was formerly the Assistant General Counsel of AT&T in charge of its Los Angeles regional law department. With her background as an in-house attorney, she has valuable insights on what business people and in-house attorneys want when they work with outside law firms. Sandy joined Lim Ruger in 2008 and has worked on many multi-million dollar real estate transactions for Lim Ruger’s clients. With her vast legal experience and sensitivity to client needs, Sandy is a tremendous asset to Lim Ruger and its clients. Her colleagues and clients frequently comment on how calm and collected she is even when working under tremendous pressure. Those of us who have had the pleasure of working with her feel fortunate that she is on “our” team.
In her spare time when she is not running prominent nonprofits or making Lim Ruger’s clients happy, Sandy likes to spend time with her family, cook, and travel. Her travels have taken her to the top of Mount Fuji, the floating market of Bangkok, and Victoria Harbour of Hong Kong.
