7 Attorneys Recognized as “Rising Stars” 2023

McDonald Carano is proud to announce that seven of our attorneys are recognized as “Rising Stars” in the 2023 edition of Mountain States Super Lawyers magazine. The list of top attorneys “recognizes attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their legal practice based on a selection process that includes nominations, independent research, and peer evaluations.”
