Alicia N. Ritchie


Miles & Stockbridge

As a successful woman in the legal field, Alicia Ritchie, attorney and principal at Miles & Stockbridge, treasures her role in helping industry leaders navigate the issues and challenges that could potentially jeopardize their businesses.

“What sets me apart, I believe, is my empathy for my clients—the very level of care that I bring to my service to them, which allows me to push the extra mile to get them where they want and need to be,” she said.
Ritchie’s also aware of her path as the first African American woman in the firm’s 100-year history to matriculate from a first-year associate to partner and the example that sets for a generation of young, diverse lawyers looking up to her.

“I am very concerned about those coming up in the profession behind me and spend as much time as possible trying to help and mentor as many young people as I can,” Ritchie said.
She is involved in a variety of volunteer efforts, including most recently becoming a Baltimore City lead for the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Success in Law School Mentoring Program, a one-on-one comprehensive mentoring program for diverse, first-year law students.

“In an occupation built on precedent, there is perhaps no single positive difference more fulfilling than becoming a precedent oneself,” Ritchie said.
Ritchie also is dean of the CollegeBound Foundation and a member of the American Bar Association TIPS Women Trial Lawyers Task Force.
