Katz, Marshall & Banks partner Lisa Banks and senior associate Jessica Westerman were recognized by the National Law Journal as winners of the 2021 Elite Trial Lawyer awards. Ms. Banks was recognized in the Elite Women of the Plaintiffs’ Bar category, and Ms. Westerman was named to the Rising Stars of the Plaintiffs' Bar list.

The NLJ selected winners from hundreds of submissions based on their demonstrated commitment and success on behalf of plaintiffs over the past 18 months. Attorneys’ impressive longer-term track records were also taken into account during the rigorous selection process.

This is the inaugural class for the Rising Stars of the Plaintiffs Bar category, representative of up-and-coming plaintiffs’ attorneys under the age of 40.

The 2021 Elite Trial Lawyers winners will be recognized at the Elite Trial Lawyers awards event on July 29, 2021, at Mandarin Oriental in New York City.
