The law firm Bose McKinney and Evans LLP is proud to announce that Stephen Unger and Elizabeth Schuerman have been named by Indiana Lawyer as "Up & Coming" lawyers in its 2012 Leadership in Law Award program.
Each year, the Up and Coming Lawyer Award recognizes 15 recipients based on their professional commitments, social and civic involvement, and community volunteerism. Members of the legal community who have practiced law for seven or fewer years are eligible. According to Indiana Lawyer, recipients were selected because their nomination rose to the top as an example of the professional qualities and accomplishments the award embodies.
