Every two years, we at The Legal recognize a group of outstanding minority attorneys from across Pennsylvania. This year, we solicited nominations from our contacts around the legal profession and went back through our archives to look at some of the major players from the past two years. We received dozens of responses, all highlighting the impressive work done by attorneys from all corners of the legal profession.
