2020 MCCA RAINMAKERS

MCCA’s Annual List of Rainmakers proves that the profession has talented diverse attorneys who also have valuable client development skills. MCCA honors attorneys from across the nation who have achieved success through innovative, consistent, and proactive business development. Their success stories offer insight and value to attorneys at every career stage.

MCCA is proud to announce its 2020 Rainmakers: 11 exceptional diverse attorneys whose business acumen, passion, and dedication to proactive client development have set them apart as leaders
in the legal profession.

MCCA congratulates the 2020 Rainmakers and celebrates the diversity of their race and ethnicities, gender, sexual orientation, and generational differences, as well as the diversity in their practice areas and career paths. The 2020 Rainmakers were selected from an exceptional group of prominent attorneys who have a proven record, over the course of several years, of compiling books of business exceeding $5 million annually and who have contributed significantly to their communities.

The 2020 MCCA Rainmakers will be honored at our 2020 Creating Pathways to Diversity plenary luncheon in New York on October 27, and 2020 Diversity Gala on October 28.

It is leaders like the MCCA Rainmakers listed below who are making a difference for our profession
where we are moving from talk to action. We cannot be herds and followers if we want to change the
face of our profession. But, strategically following great examples like the 2020 MCCA Rainmakers
will allow us all to #RiseUnited.
