At its annual Up & Coming Awards on Oct. 6, the Missouri Lawyers Weekly awarded the Hon. Michael W. Noble its Mentor Award, which is given to more experienced legal professionals who have played an important role in the development of those starting out in the profession.
The Up & Coming Awards recognize lawyers who are 40 years or younger or within the first 10 years of practice. In addition to the general Up & Coming category, some lawyers are recognized in special categories.
This year, the sheer volume of nominations received was the highest in the collective memory of staff at Missouri Lawyers Media, Publisher Liz Irwin told the crowd. “Make no mistake, to be nominated for our awards means an attorney had a remarkable positive impact,” Irwin said. “To be selected is a testament to outstanding and consistent contribution to Missouri’s legal community.”
A total of 58 attorneys were honored this year at a luncheon at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis. Approximately 300 people attended the event.
