Excellence in Law

Click here for the 2014 nomination form.

The Daily Record hosted its inaugural Excellence in Law event in 2013, honoring members of the legal community with three distinguished awards: Top Women in Law, Up & Coming Attorneys and Unsung Legal Heroes.

The Daily Record recognizes Rochester’s Up & Coming Attorneys who demonstrate a strong commitment to the legal profession early in their careers. To be considered, nominees must be admitted to the bar for 10 years or less.

The Top Women in Law awards recognize the outstanding accomplishments of women who are making notable contributions to the legal profession, while inspiring a positive change in the community.

The Unsung Legal Heroes award honors individuals from area civil legal services providers who have consistently worked to help those in need, often behind the scenes.

This year’s Excellence in Law event  is set for May 20. Mark your calendars now!
