Taft Cincinnati attorney Kimberly Despas recently accepted an invitation for membership in The National Black Lawyers - Top 40 Under 40. In order to be considered for membership, a candidate must have an outstanding reputation among the legal community, notable achievements and verdicts as a lawyer, and must be nominated for the position. The NBL then hand-selects influential lawyers who have a reputation for providing excellent legal representation and who are leaders in their respective practice areas. Despas is the latest addition to a steadily expanding number of Taft attorneys who have been selected for membership in this prestigious organization.
The National Black Lawyers is an invitation-only professional development organization that maintains a national network of the top African American attorneys in each state. For more information about the NBL, visit here.
