Now in its fifth year, the annual award event recognizes attorneys who – right out of the starting gate – have shown themselves to be rising stars. With eight years or less of experience, honorees have handled challenging legal issues, taken steps to improve the justice system and given of themselves to their communities.
Honorees were chosen for their initiative and zeal for the practice of law, as well as their commitment to community and the positive effect they have on the lives of those around them.
Some of them do pro bono work, others donate time to local organizations and many mentor the next generation.
The 2013 dinner and awards presentation was held at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.
