RISING STARS 2021

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.

MCCA is proud to announce the Top 20 Rising Stars of 2021! As we push for greater equity and systemic change, it is more important than ever we celebrate the achievements of these 20 talented diverse attorneys leading the charge for systemic change in their communities and workplaces.

The 2021 MCCA Rising Stars were profiled and recognized on our website and social media and honored at our Creating Pathways to Diversity Virtual Conference on October 27.
