Legal magazine Lawdragon has published its annual listing of the 500 “Leading Lawyers in America,” which includes Lieff Cabraser partners Elizabeth J. Cabraser and Kelly M. Dermody. Selected from a combination of editorial research by Lawdragon staff, law firm submissions, and other online nominations, the Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers list is a mark of distinction in the legal profession across a wide range of practice areas.
According to Lawdragon, “this year’s 500 reflects the turmoil and uncertainty of the past year, wrapped around the lawyers and judges who define our rights, our property and our futures… And thus is the 500, lawyerly to a fault, packed with 34 percent amazing women lawyers; 15 percent minority lawyers; and a resurgent public interest force.”
Congratulations Elizabeth and Kelly on this prestigious accomplishment!
