MCCA Rising Stars

MCCA’s Rising Stars is an annual list featuring stellar attorneys whose accomplishments and dedication to the legal profession and to their community place them among those “attorneys to watch”. The MCCA Rising Stars may be of different ages and at varying stages in their careers, but they all possess the love of law, ambition, and pursuit of excellence, while possessing a compassion for those in need and a strong desire to give back to others.

The 2019 MCCA Rising Stars were honored at our 2019 Creating Pathways to Diversity Conference in New York on October 15 and will be profiled in MCCA’S flagship publication Diversity & the Bar®.
