We are excited that one of our shareholders, attorney Marie E. Casciari, has been recommended by her Leading Lawyer peers as an Emerging Lawyer for 2022. The distinction of being an Emerging Lawyer is earned by fewer than 2% of all lawyers licensed to practice law in the state. Emerging Lawyers are 40 years of age or younger or have been practicing law for 10 or fewer years.

The selection process is the result of contact with thousands of lawyers in a given state. Only those lawyers who are most often recommended, and approved by the Leading Lawyers Advisory Board, are selected as Leading Lawyers or Emerging Lawyers.
