Minnesota Lawyer has recognized two Minneapolis attorneys as "Up & Coming Attorneys" and two professional staff members as "Unsung Legal Heroes."
A. Elizabeth Burnett and Brandon Vaughn are recipients of the 2016 "Up & Coming Attorneys" award, which is presented to select lawyers within their first 10 years of practice who have already distinguished themselves by their achievements. According to Minnesota Lawyer, the criteria for selection are: professional accomplishment, leadership service to the community and the profession, or achievement as in-house counsel. Elizabeth focuses her practice on commercial litigation and insurance issues, while Brandon focuses his on personal injury and medical malpractice cases.
Amanda Booth, paralegal, and Jamie Lindahl, a legal administrative assistant, are recipients of the 2016 "Unsung Legal Heroes" award. This award honors law firm employees who have constantly gone above and beyond the call of duty, often behind the scenes. Minnesota Lawyer states that the award is reserved for the state's most talented and dedicated legal support professionals.
