MIAMI  – Attorney At Law magazine of Greater Miami, a premiere business publication focused on South Florida’s legal industry, is seeking nominations for it’s 30 to Watch in 2013 said Publisher Rhenne Leon.

“We want to profile Miami-Dade attorneys who will be making a big impact in 2013,” said Leon. “These are lawyers who are either handling significant corporate transactions, achieving noteworthy court verdicts or settlements for their clients, leading the charge to update obsolete laws and legal procedures, or volunteering with civic organizations to make the community better for others.”

-Leon said the nominees must be a member of The Florida Bar (in good standing), over the age of 30, and mainly based in Miami-Dade County. Submissions should include a biography (or resume); a descriptive essay, no more than two pages, explaining why the nominee will be one to watch in 2013; the attorney’s contact information; and headshot. Completed nomination materials should be emailed Friday, September 21, 2012 to: RLeon@attorneyatlawmagazine.com or rhenne.leon@gmail.com.

The finalists will be selected by the attorneys who were featured past issues of Attorney at Law magazine including the “12 to Watch in 2012” issue, the 2012 “Women in Law” issue, and the attorneys gracing the covers of the 2011 and 2012 issues.

Leon said while professional achievements will weigh heavily, strong consideration will be given to attorneys who are involved in the community.

“While Attorney at Law magazine is focused on the legal community, we also embrace local nonprofits and charities,” said Leon. “In the past, we highlighted organizations dedicated to autism, Down syndrome, Crohn’s disease, colitis, and cystic fibrosis. We have also worked with groups such as FAWL, the Black Women Lawyers Association, Legal Aid, Lawyers to the Rescue, as well as the local bars. Those selected for the 30 to Watch in 2013 will have the opportunity to spotlight their favorite charities and nonprofits as well.”
