2021 Rising Stars Nominations

The 2021 Rising Stars Nominations are now open! 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 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.

Selected Rising Stars will be profiled and recognized on our website and social media throughout the year and honored at our 2021 Creating Pathways to Diversity Conference on October 12. The profiles of all the past Rising Star honorees can be found here and their sponsored spotlight videos can be found here.

Our goal is for the honorees to embody a wide representation, including race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, attorneys with disabilities, geographic location and practice area.
