Beermann Pritikin Mirabelli Swerdlove LLP is pleased to announce that divorce and family law attorney, Kathryn L. Mickelson, has been named one of “40 Illinois Attorneys Under 40 to Watch” for 2012 by Law Bulletin Publishing Company, publishers of Chicago Lawyer magazine and the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin. Ms. Mickelson is featured along with other recognized attorneys in a special supplement to the publication that is currently available.

“Katy is an extraordinary attorney and dedicated to her clients. Her tenacity, attention to detail and empathy makes her an excellent divorce and family lawyer,” said Howard A. London, Divorce and Family Law Partner at Beermann Pritikin Mirabelli Swerdlove LLP.

Law Bulletin Publishing’s “40 under 40” is an annual survey conducted to determine who Illinois attorneys believe are the “up and comers” of law in Illinois. To maintain objectivity, attorneys cannot nominate themselves or attorneys from their own law firm, corporation or public entity. The strength of each nomination is evaluated based on a number of criteria, including the reputation of the nominator, the professional relationship between the nominator and the nominee, and the nominator’s first-hand knowledge of the nominee’s experience, skill, and character.
