Hear from Ali...

"This award is a true honor. To me, it symbolizes many of the attributes that I, as a young professional, aspire to demonstrate every day: a thirst for knowledge, a commitment to hard work, and a passion for the legal marketing industry and community. It’s incredibly rewarding to be recognized in this way.

I firmly believe that the people you surround yourself with matter. I feel fortunate to work at a firm and in an industry where I regularly encounter smart, dedicated people, many of whom are helping to shape me professionally. I continue to draw inspiration from and surround myself with these people, because they show me what it means to be your best self – authentic, generous and kind. I hope I can pay it forward and similarly influence a future Rising Star one day. "
