Up & Coming Lawyers

In this section you’ll meet 55 young lawyers who have made their marks both in the profession and in their communities. As a member of the selection committee, I will tell you that we could have selected 88 and been no less proud of the list of winners.

But we had to make the cut somewhere.

Speaking of making the cut. My desk is stacked high with nomination letters and other support material. To include all of the information would have filled not only this issue, but also every Missouri Lawyers Weekly this year. So we decided this year to give just one short excerpt as an example of why each of the winners was selected and then have the Up & Comers tell you a little more about themselves.

Their survey answers are bright and funny, deep and philosophical. In short, they confirm why this talented group of 20- and 30-somethings has been so successful.
