Each year Minnesota Lawyer recognizes a group of new attorneys off to a fast start in their legal career and the legal professionals who work to make sure the job gets done.
We are very pleased to announce the 2013 Up & Coming Attorneys and Unsung Legal Heroes.
To make the selections, the paper seeks input from judges, bar groups and lawyers to identify the Up & Coming Attorneys who have distinguished themselves through a combination of on professional accomplishments, leadership and service. All of the honorees are in their first decade of practice.
For the Unsung Legal Heroes, the honorees came from seven categories: legal administrative assistant, paralegal or judicial clerk, administrator or office manager, librarian, accounting staff, information technology and marketing.
We have a good representation of private practice, in house legal departments, state and local government and legal services agencies.
Please enjoy the profiles in this special section and congratulations to the 2013 Up & Coming Attorneys and Unsung Legal Heroes.
