Twenty-six of Wisconsin’s best and brightest young attorneys were honored Aug. 31 at the Wisconsin Club during the Wisconsin Law Journal’s Up and Coming Lawyers event. More than 250 honorees and guests attended the event. Honorees were selected from more than 75 nominations in a wide range of practice areas – everything from criminal defense to trusts and estates to the city attorney’s office.
