Rising Stars 2019

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”. Their backgrounds are as diverse as their practice areas, but what these Rising Stars have in common is their love of law and pursuit of excellence, while possessing a compassion for those in need and a strong desire to give back to others.

The nomination pool of talented 2019 Rising Stars was great, and the competition was fierce. MCCA narrowed the field down to 13 outstanding attorneys who are leading the charge for change in their communities and the legal profession.

The 2019 MCCA Rising Stars will be profiled in MCCA’S flagship publication Diversity & the Bar® and honored at our annual Creating Pathways to Diversity Conference in New York on October 15. Please join us in honoring 13 extraordinary Rising Stars.
