    Minnesota Lawyer’s annual awards luncheon celebrates the future leaders of the legal profession alongside those that actually keep the wheels of justice moving.

    Up & Coming Attorneys are those who have in their first 10 years of practice distinguished themselves by their:
    • Professional accomplishment
    • Leadership
    • Service to community/profession
    • Achievement as in-house counsel

    Unsung Legal Heroes are important to their colleagues, their clients and their communities.

    They make the lawyers look good in court and the offices look good all the time. And, even more remarkably, they not only can keep their cyber worlds safe and secure, but they also can speak technology to lawyers.
