2014 LEADERS IN THE LAW

Almost 400 people came out Thursday night to celebrate Wisconsin Law Journal’s 2014 Leaders in the Law at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center.

The annual awards program, now in its 12th year, recognizes the top judges, attorneys and legal professionals making a difference in Wisconsin’s legal community. Honorees were chosen from nominations submitted by their peers.

This year’s distinguished class of honorees includes a former state Supreme Court justice, a Milwaukee County judge and several law firm founders (see full list below). Recognized for the lifetime achievements were Tom Cannon, executive director of the Legal Aid Society of Milwaukee Inc., and John Ebbott, executive director of Legal Action of Wisconsin Inc. Both are set to retire this year.
