Leading Lawyers are attorneys who have been recognized in their practice areas and are considered the top 5% of all lawyers in their state. Our attorneys’ persistence for excellence shows through this process as attorneys are reevaluated for this distinction each year. MMR is proud of our shareholders Patrick B. Mathis, George E. Marifian, Kevin J. Richter, Mark J. Stegman, Mark S. Schuver, Gregory W. Coffey, William J. Niehoff, Kelli E. Madigan, Bradley W. Small, Mary E. Lopinot, Deanna L. Litzenburg and Philip D.

Emerging Lawyers are attorneys who are considered to be the top lawyers in the state. These lawyers are under the age of 40 or have practiced for no more than 10 years. These attorneys have made a huge impact on the legal community and make up only 2% of licensed attorneys in each state. This year our shareholders Laura E. Schrick, and Beth K. Flowers have been recognized on the Emerging Lawyers list. Along with our shareholders, associates Natalie T. Lorenz, Rebecca K. Wohltman, Colin C. Clark and Melissa C.
