Two Capes Sokol attorneys have been selected by Missouri Lawyers Weekly to receive awards as "Up & Coming Lawyers in 2014."
Sara G. Neill, chair of the firm’s Civil & Criminal Tax Controversy Practice, was selected as "Up & Coming Law Firm Leader," while Laura E. Krebs Al-Shathir, an associate in the firm, was selected as an "Up & Coming Lawyer."
Winners are selected for demonstrating excellence in the legal profession and in their commitment to their communities. The award recognizes extraordinary commitment to justice, service to the legal profession and exceptional volunteerism. Honorees are leaders of, not just participants in, such activities.
Gary R. Sarachan, shareholder and a founding member of the firm, said, “As a law firm we are honored but not surprised by these awards. Under Sara’s leadership our Tax Controversy Group has become a force. Laura’s dedication to excellence in her profession, coupled with her charitable work in the community, makes her a worthy recipient.”
Neill earned a juris doctorate from University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law in 2003 and Al-Shathir earned a juris doctorate, University of Missouri–Columbia School of Law, Certificate in Tax in 2003.
