MCCA’s Annual List of Rising Stars proves that the profession has upcoming talent who may or may not be of a certain age group or practice law as a second career, but they all give back. Their backgrounds are as diverse as their practice areas, but what these Rising Stars have in common is their love of law, their diligence, and pursuit of excellence, while possessing a compassion for those in need and a strong desire to give back to others. They are dedicated to their profession, but have also learned the art of balancing work with a life that includes being expert speakers, authors, volunteers and leaders in their communities.

Though they are different ages and at varying stages in their careers, they share a common goal to pursue justice in its various forms. The nomination pool of talented Rising Stars was great, but the Minority Corporate Counsel Association narrowed the field down to 11 stellar attorneys whose accomplishments and dedication to the field and to their community place them among those “attorneys to watch” in the legal profession.

The 2017 MCCA Rising Stars were profiled in MCCA’S flagship publication Diversity & the Bar® and honored at our annual Creating Pathways to Diversity Conference in New York on October 3, 2017. We salute the MCCA Rising Stars!
