40 Under Forty: Courtney Ross Escobar

Erika Sidor
At Creative Hub Worcester are 40 Under Forty winners (from left) Andrew B. Palumbo, Courtney Ross Escobar, Meghan E. Montaner and Patrick J. DiGregorio.

Escobar moved from Boston to Worcester in 2013 to found law firm, Ross Escobar Group, to make legal protections more accessible for small businesses and startups. After three years, her firm merged with Doucette, adding litigation assistance for clients.

She serves as advisory board member on the Worcester County Commission on the Status of Women, focusing on the opioid crisis and its impact on women and children. Escobar sits on the Worcester City Historical Commission. She enjoys hiking with her husband, Christian, and two children, Leo and Lola, at the many parks of Central Massachusetts.

How do you define success? When my clients' businesses grow, they hire more employees, move to bigger spaces or open additional businesses.

Favorite piece of Central Mass. history? President John Adams studied law in Worcester.

What superpower would you like? Telekinesis. It's simultaneously awesome and practical.
