Jana Volante, a litigator with the law firm of Fox Rothschild in Pittsburgh, has been named to the Pittsburgh Advisory Council of Strong Women, Strong Girls.

Strong Women, Strong Girls is a nationally recognized mentoring program dedicated to raising the aspirations and self-esteem of elementary school girls by connecting them with college women in Pittsburgh, Boston and Miami. In Pittsburgh, during the 2011-2012 program year, 135 mentors from five college chapters empowered more than 400 girls at 26 partner sites, supported by more than 45 adult volunteers who serve as leadership coaches and site monitors.

In her law practice, Volante represents clients in both commercial litigation and white collar criminal defense and compliance matters. She recently co-authored an article in Bloomberg BNA's Criminal Law Reporter explaining the effects of recent court opinions and the range of remedies available to defense counsel when faced with potentially incriminating eyewitness testimony.
