Missouri Lawyers Weekly honors up and coming lawyers

Missouri Lawyers Weekly on Friday hosted its annual Up & Coming Awards, which recognize lawyers who are 40 years or younger or within the first 10 years of practice.

“They’re from all over the state and practice all types of law, but here’s what they have in common – each is accomplished and has exhibited, day in and day out, incredible dedication to the profession and their communities,” said Missouri Lawyers Weekly Publisher Liz Irwin.

A total of 58 attorneys were honored this year at a luncheon at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis. More than 300 people attended the event.

This year’s awards recognized Mark Emison, of Langdon & Emison, and John J. Rehmann, of Dowd Bennett, for an extraordinary pro bono work.

The public service category, which recognizes those working in the non-profit or government sector, honored Maggie Ahrenbach, of the Missouri Attorney General’s Office, Nick Heberle, of the Missouri Governor’s Office, Amanda Schneider, of Legal Services of Eastern Missouri, Stephanie Wan, Greene County Prosecutor’s Office, Matthew Gigliotti, Office of the City Attorney in Kansas City, Erik Holland, Platte County Sheriff’s Office, Jacqueline Jimenez, Missouri Public Defender’s Office in Springfield, Jennifer Matthew, City of St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office and Ronald Nguyen, The Law Office of Ronald Nguyen.
