Legal Times Annual Gala 2009


Legal Times has recognized the lawyers who had the greatest impact on the Washington, DC legal community over the last year. To celebrate their contributions, a black tie gala celebration will be held on October 13, 2009. Honorees include: Champions, Visionaries & Pioneers and Rising Stars: Washington's 40 Under 40.

Rising Stars are the 40 leading lawyers in Washington under the age of 40. They have created distinguished practices, advanced legal scholarship, and significantly contributed to the bar and the Washington community through public service. No matter what their focus, these lawyers have served in an exemplary manner, demonstrating a deep commitment to the profession and holding themselves to the highest standards of excellence. They are model citizens. Mr. Ahmed Davis was named one of the “40 Under 40: Washington’s Rising Stars” by The National Law Journal, which noted his litigation accomplishments. He will be honored at this event.
