DCS, Esq. Named to The Legal Intelligencer's 2014 Lawyers on the Fast Track!

It is with great excitement and pride that I announce being named to The Legal Intelligencer's 2014 "Lawyers on the Fast Track" list! Each year the periodical requests nominations from the legal community across the state of up-and-coming young lawyers under the age of 40. They seek to spotlight those who not only excel as lawyers, but also serve as exemplary members of their communities and their profession. Nominations are reviewed by an 8-member judging panel composed of those from all corners of the legal profession and the state. This year, out of dozens and dozens of applications, 36 made the cut. Of all the recipients, Diana is not only one of the youngest, but she is also the only solo practitioner on the list! A full profile of each winner will be released in The Legal's "Lawyers on the Fast Track" supplement in September and a celebratory reception will be held in November. During the event, and in the weeks leading up to it, pay attention to the #TLILOFT14 hashtag on Twitter for coverage. To read more a see a full list of those on the fast track, click here:
