Missouri Lawyers Media to honor 25 Unsung Heroes

Staff Report//June 25, 2018//

Listen to this article

It takes more than lawyers to make a law firm run smoothly. Jurors might see attorneys winning big cases for their clients in a courtroom, but those wins wouldn’t be possible without the work of paralegals, legal secretaries, librarians and a host of other staff working behind the scenes.

For the third year in a row, Missouri Lawyers Media celebrates those legal-support professionals who go above and beyond for their organizations, whether by promoting the firm through successful marketing plans, lining up expert witnesses, or modernizing computer software.
