Adams and Reese Attorney Suntrease Williams-Maynard has successfully completed the eight-month intensive program ‘Leadership Baldwin County’.
Suntrease was selected in September as a member of the Leadership Baldwin County Class of 2021. The program enhances the development of long-term leadership in Baldwin County by identifying current and potential leaders and addressing issues from a county-wide perspective. Suntrease’s small group worked on establishing proclamations at various municipalities, including at the County level, to observe the month of May as Mental Health Awareness Month. Additionally, her small group created Public Service Announcements, which are currently running on WKRG News 5 in order to bring awareness in the area of mental health and reduce the stigma that is associated with it.
Prior to joining Adams and Reese, Suntrease served as a federal prosecutor with a combination of over a decade of experience working with both the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In that capacity, she has successfully prosecuted thousands of misdemeanor and felony cases. Because of her unique mix of legal and human resource advocacy and consulting, Suntrease’s primary practice at Adams and Reese includes providing guidance and advice to HR professionals and managers across various industries on EEO and DEI principles and leading and conducting investigations for municipalities and educational institutions in various matters, including allegations of misconduct, policy violations and sexual harassment to name a few.
Leadership Baldwin County offers its members a broad range of experiences and insights about the county, its people, its needs, its services, its challenges, and opportunities.
