The National Law Journal has named Panish Shea & Boyle LLP attorney Deborah Chang among the finalists for 2018 Elite Trial Lawyers. Ms. Chang is recognized in the publication’s inaugural class of finalists Elite Women of the Plaintiffs Bar category which celebrates women lawyers who have consistently excelled in high-stakes matters on behalf of plaintiffs over the course of their careers. “I’m so deeply honored to be placed even in the same category as these fearless, phenomenal women trial lawyers, many of whom I have admired and respected for years,” says Ms. Chang. “At a time when the statistics of women who actually try cases in our courtrooms are shockingly low, this category will hopefully inspire and motivate the legal profession. I’ve read each of the other finalists’ stories, and I’m so impressed and proud of their remarkable accomplishments.”
Editors and reporters from ALM and The National Law Journal reviewed more than 300 submissions across 23 categories to arrive at the 2018 Elite Trial Lawyers list.
Winners will be announced in October at the Elite Trial Lawyers event in Las Vegas.
