Ben Schwartzman Receives Idaho “Leaders in Law” Recognition

Sep 08, 2017

The votes are all in, and the “ayes” have it for this year’s Idaho Business Review Leaders in Law program.

Former award winners, plus one representing the University of Idaho College of Law, cast their ballots to determine this year’s honorees.

Applicants were scored in four categories – leadership in their profession, achievements, volunteer work, and leadership in the community.

In the end, 21 achievers, including one Lifetime Achievement Award winner, made the grade, scoring high marks across the board. It was an “impressive group of attorneys,” said Jeremiah Hudson of Fisher Rainey Hudson, and a 2013 honoree. Bill Nary, city attorney and risk manager for the City of Meridian, and a 2013 Leader in Law, agreed wholeheartedly. “I was impressed,” he said.

The 2017 Leaders in Law will be profiled and published with the Idaho Business Review Nov. 17. The University of Idaho College of Law is the presenting sponsor.

An awards reception open to the public will honor the group 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 16 in the Idaho Room in the Eighth and Main building in downtown Boise.
