(Trott), a Farmington Hills, Mich.-based law firm serving the mortgage banking industry, announced that Melissa Byrd, Brian Yoho, Rana Razzaque and Amy Nuemann were recognized as “Michigan Rising Stars” by Super Lawyers magazine. Trott Chairman David A. Trott made the announcement.
To qualify as a “Michigan Rising Star”, candidates must be 40-years-old or under and have been practicing for 10 years or less. Candidates must be nominated by a fellow attorney who has witnessed them in action – whether as co-counsel, as opposing counsel or through first-hand observation. An attorney-led research team then reviews each candidate and assigns points based on a set of defined criteria. Lawyers are ranked by the final point total and those with the highest totals are named to the “Michigan Rising Stars” list.
“This is an incredible honor and a great accomplishment for each of these attorneys,” said Trott. “We are proud to see them recognized for the hard work and dedication they exhibit on a daily basis.”
Melissa Byrd joined Trott in 2011 as a litigation attorney concentrating her practice in the areas of bankruptcy and mortgage creditors’ rights. Ms. Byrd earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan Dearborn and her Juris Doctor from the Ave Maria School of Law.
