Rochester, N.Y., May 15, 2019—The Daily Record selected Frances M. Kabat, Associate Attorney, The Zoghlin Group, PLLC. to receive an Excellence in Law Award, “Up & Coming Attorneys”.
The Daily Record’s Excellence in Law program honors members of the legal community with three distinguished awards: Top Women in Law, Up & Coming Attorneys, and Unsung Legal Heroes.
Top Women in Law awards recognize the outstanding accomplishments of female attorneys who are making notable contributions to the legal profession while inspiring positive change in the community. The Up & Coming Attorneys category honors those who demonstrate professional accomplishment, community service and a strong commitment to the legal profession early in their careers. To be considered, nominees must be admitted to the bar for 10 years or less. The Unsung Legal Heroes category honors staff members—paralegals, legal secretaries, administrators, law librarians and legal marketers—who help lawyers achieve success.
“This year’s Excellence in Law honorees are exceptional. Not only are they professionally accomplished, but they are committed to making a difference in their community,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “The honorees, in the categories of Top Women in Law, Up & Coming Attorneys, and Unsung Legal Heroes, uphold the highest legal standards and improve communities throughout Western New York. It is an honor for The Daily Record to recognize their accomplishments.”
The 2019 Excellence in Law Awards will be presented June 6 at a luncheon and awards reception starting at 11:30 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency Rochester, 125 East Main Street in Rochester. Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the June 7 issue of The Daily Record and available online at www.NYDailyRecord.com.The event hashtag is #TDREvents.
