Paula Dow, L'80 courts trouble. She grew up in the working
class neighborhood of Yeadon near Philadelphia, parlaying her
drive to succeed into a round of ever-increasing challenges.
In 1987 Dow left the comparatively placid world of corporate
law, in which she was lead attorney for one of the world's
largest oil and gas refineries, to fight corruption alongside Rudy
Guiliani. She later became the highest law enforcement official
in the badlands of Essex County, N.J.
