The Up & Coming lawyers of 2017

Dedicated? Of course. Intelligent? Certainly. Hardworking? Goes without saying. But it takes a little bit more to be one of Missouri Lawyers Weekly’s Up & Coming lawyers.

The 58 members of our 2017 Up & Coming class stand out from their peers. They’re the kind of lawyers you just know you’ll be hearing about for the rest of their careers.

Our staff selects finalists based on their demonstration of excellence and their potential to make a difference in the legal profession and their communities. The awards recognize lawyers who are 40 or younger or who are within their first 10 years of practice.

The attorneys will be honored at an awards luncheon on Friday, Oct. 6 at the Missouri Athletic Club in downtown St. Louis.

The members of this year’s Up & Coming class are:

In addition to the general Up & Coming category, some lawyers are recognized in special categories:

Recognizing early-career professionals working in the non-profit or government sectors.

 Pro Bono

Recognizing an extraordinary pro bono project led by an early-career professional.


Given to more experienced legal professionals who have played an important role in the development of those starting out in the profession.
