J. Scholefield, P.E. Esq.
Straight out of engineering school in 1984, Pam started
her career as an engineer for General Electric. During
that time she fulfilled numerous positions such as manufacturing
engineer, automation engineer and electrical power distribution
product sales engineer. During this time Pam sat for and
received her Professional Engineering License, which she
maintains on an active status.
Eventually she was promoted to Area Manager for the Electrical
Distribution and Control division working with contractors,
industrials and distributors. All typically involved large
commercial and public works projects.
While attending law school at the University of San Diego
she continued working full time for local electrical distributors
as a GE equipment specialist. Her expertise and in-depth
knowledge of power distribution served her well, and she
has earned a well deserved reputation within the electrical
industry. Also while in law school, Pam tutored at-risk
students, wrote for the school newspaper and was executive
editor of Law Review.
After receiving her J. D. with honors, in 1998, she resisted
the urge to pursue the large law firm associate ladder,
knowing that she would be able to make more of an immediate
impact working closely within the construction industry,
applying her electrical industry experience along with
the law. She seeks out opportunities where she is able
to capitalize on her already extensive construction background.
Pam is also recognized for her understanding of construction
contracts. She is a regular lecturer on AIA contracts,
teaches contracts classes through the electrical apprentice
program and is a regular contributor to various business
and trade publications.
