Champions & Visionaries

The National Law Journal

   | 0 Comments

This is the fourth year that we've recognized attorneys for work that has helped advance the practice of law in Washington. And as with our past efforts, the attorneys profiled here are heavy hitters whose influence often extends far beyond the Beltway.

Selections are made by the editors of The National Law Journal, based upon nominations from the legal community and our reporting and research. We divide our selections into two categories: Champions, those who have upheld the profession's core values through public service, pro bono efforts and advocacy for civil liberties, and Visionaries, attorneys whose business or legal acumen has expanded their firms, improved government or advanced the law. — David L. Brown, editor in chief

CHAMPIONS
These lawyers upheld the legal industry’s professional mission of public duty. They took on community causes, fought to protect civil liberties and worked for ethics in government.
VISIONARIES
These attorneys saw farther ahead. They navigated firms through a stagnant economy, argued for revised criminal justice policies and guided agencies through legal thickets.
