Minnesota Lawyer Names Unsung Heroes, Up & Coming Attorneys

Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid - Saint Cloud Staff Honored

Diane Liebrenz, legal secretary with MMLA - Saint Cloud, has been selected as an Unsung Legal Hero by Minnesota Lawyer.  The Unsung Legal Heroes award honors law firm employees who consistently go above and beyond the call of duty, often behind the scenes. This award is reserved for the state’s most talented and dedicated legal support professionals.

Riann Meyer, staff attorney with MMLA - Saint Cloud, has been named an Up & Coming Attorney by Minnesota Lawyer. The Up & Coming Attorneys recognition highlights lawyers in their first 10 years of practice who have already distinguished themselves by their achievements. The criteria for selection are: professional accomplishment, leadership service to the community and the profession, or achievement as in-house counsel.

Both groups were nominated by colleagues, supervisors and peers, and chosen by a panel of prior winners of the relevant award. This year both groups will be recognized together at a lunch event Sept. 10th at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Minneapolis. Minnesota Lawyer will publish a special section Sept. 14 profiling the honorees. See the list of all honorees.
