Earlier this month, the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) named Renaud Cook Drury Mesaros associate attorney Marcos Tapia to the prestigious “HNBA Top Lawyers Under 40” list.
After a rigorous review process, the Awards Committee selected 33 highly qualified winners from across the country — a group including Tapia. The Top Lawyers Under 40 Award honors accomplished lawyers who have demonstrated professional excellence, integrity, leadership, commitment to the Hispanic community and dedication to improving the legal profession.
“We are incredibly proud to honor 33 of our best Latino and Latina lawyers and community leaders from across the nation,” said Erica V. Mason, HNBA National President and Partner at Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP. “Once again this year, the HNBA received the largest number of nominations in history, surpassing even last year’s record. The number of both nominees and honorees exemplifies the depth and strength of our community in the areas of law and leadership.”
“I want to thank the HNBA Awards Committee for their diligent work during the selection process, and I offer my hearty congratulations to the award winners. Keep trailblazing and making us proud.”
Tapia currently serves as the Deputy Regional President for the HNBA and Communications Director for the Los Abogados Hispanic Bar Association in Arizona. Additionally, he has received numerous accolades and most recently was named to The Arizona Republic’s “Who’s Next” list and as a local Rising Star of the Year candidate by the American Cancer Society.
The Top Lawyers Under 40 awards will be presented during the 2018 HNBA Corporate Counsel Conference Friday, March 16 in San Francisco, Calif.
