I want to say that the character in the novel was the first female to ever become a lawyer in her family (her family and all the generations from her mothers and fathers side)
Well, you didn't say it too badly the first time.
To shorten, you could say the following:
No female in generations past has been a lawyer in her family.
Coming from a long line of <other professions>, <character name> was the very first lawyer on either side of her family.
She was the first female lawyer on her family tree.
