Frederick, MD. – 13th May, 2021 – The Daily Record has named Attorney Nicholas McDaniels of LewisMcDaniels to its 2021 listing of Leadership in Law honorees.
The Daily Record launched Leadership in Law in 2001 to recognize Maryland’s legal professionals – lawyers and judges – whose dedication to their occupation and to their communities is outstanding. In addition, Leadership in Law also recognizes up-and-coming legal professionals through Generation J.D. and legal professionals with exemplary careers through the Lifetime Achievement Award. Winners were selected by an outside panel of legal and business leaders.
The top winner of this year’s Leadership in Law Awards will be announced at the online celebration event on June 17. The honoree will be determined by a vote of this year’s Leadership in Law winners.
“This year’s Leadership in Law celebrates the legal professionals who make this state great. We honor their excellent work in the profession in addition to their devoted community service and mentoring of the next generation” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, senior group publisher of The Daily Record. “In addition, the Generation J.D. Award recognizes those in the early stages of their careers, and the Lifetime Achievement Award honors those who have dedicated many years to the profession. We at The Daily Record are pleased to recognize this year’s honorees.”
Attorney Nicholas McDaniels prides himself on being an active member of the community. He is frequently involved in the provisions of pro bono services in concert with Maryland Legal Aid, hosting a monthly Lawyers in the Schools clinic at Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School and serving as pro bono counsel, with the Maryland Courts Self-Help Center in Frederick, Maryland as limited appearance pro bono counsel for self-represented litigants. Attorney McDaniels also directs the Law and Leadership Program at Mergenthaler High, where he has taught for twelve years and serves as the Baltimore Teachers Union building representative, and where he works to shape the next generation of legal workers. Attorney McDaniels is the Broker and Co-Owner of Union Preferred Realty, whose motto, Real Property with Real Purpose, is lived out through donations of a percentage of all commissions earned to local organizations.
“It is an incredible honor to see my name listed among so many talented and passionate practitioners. I’m fortunate to have the support of my family, firm, friends, and students who encourage my pro bono efforts and my life’s work of creating learning opportunities and career possibilities in the law for young people in Baltimore.”
