YOUNGSTOWN, OH – We are pleased to announce that Shirley J. Christian has been named the “2017 Woman of the Year” by Youngstown Business and Professional Women (YBPW). She will be honored at a special event held during National Business Women’s Week®, sponsored by YBPW, on Tuesday, October 17th at The Lake Club, located at 1140 Paulin Road in Poland, Ohio. The award is given to “one female leader who has excelled in her career and community.”

Shirley has been a trial lawyer for more than 28 years and is a former Judge in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court. She has successfully defended doctors, hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care providers in wrongful death, brain injury, birth injury and catastrophic disability cases.  Her experience covers almost every recognized medical specialty.   

In addition to her medical malpractice experience, Shirley has represented employers in discrimination, wrongful termination and other lawsuits. 

While Shirley served as a Judge of Common Pleas Court, she reduced the backlog of cases by 40%, presided over thousands of civil and criminal cases and multiple jury trials, as well as the largest single indictment drug case in the history of Mahoning County. She worked to educate the public about the Court, and also started a Veterans Treatment Court at the felony level in Mahoning County.

 “We are honored to celebrate Shirley’s accomplishments and impact on our community.  Her years of professional leadership, commitment to our valley, and advocacy for women is why YBPW chose Shirley as the 2017 Woman of the Year,” states Dee McFarland, YBPW President.
