Attorney Zandra L. Johnson has been selected by the Southern Region of the Lawyers of Color for its inaugural “Hot List,” which honors early- to mid-career minority attorneys who are excelling in the legal profession. Johnson was honored for this distinction at a reception and photo shoot held at Greenberg Traurig’s Atlanta, Ga. office July 16, 2013.
The honorees were chosen through a two-pronged process, whereby a selection committee – comprised of editorial staff and advisers, as well as law school fellows and interns – spent months reviewing nominations and researching bar publications and legal blogs to identify promising candidates. Nominations from mentors, peers, and colleagues were also accepted.
Ms. Johnson has also been previously honored by YWCA as a Dream Achiever; featured by Destiny Magazine as a Woman of Achievement; recognized by South Carolina’s Greater Middleton Chapel AME Church as a Phenomenal Woman; and selected by Greenville Business Magazine as one of the Best and Brightest 35 and Under.
