Missouri Lawyers Media will honor 45 attorneys from around the state with its 2018 Up & Coming Awards, which recognize early-career lawyers who demonstrate professional excellence while making a positive impact on their profession and communities.
The annual Up & Coming awards celebrate outstanding legal professionals who are 40 or younger or who are within their first 10 years of practice. Honorees have demonstrated professional accomplishment, skill and leadership beyond their years as well as extraordinary commitment to their communities through volunteer service and leadership.
The 2018 honorees will be recognized at an awards luncheon on Friday, Oct. 12 at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis. Click here for event and ticket information.
