The Daily Record has named Cordell & Cordell Baltimore Senior Litigation Attorney Kumudha Kumarachandran to the 2021 VIP List — Very Important Professionals Successful by 40 awards.

The Daily Record created the VIP List in 2010 to recognize professionals 40 years of age and younger who have been successful in Maryland. Winners, chosen by a panel of judges including the previous year’s winners and representatives of The Daily Record, were selected based on professional accomplishments, community service and the impact of their achievements.  

“The 2021 VIP List honorees are inspirations to many. Their ideas, energy and creative spirit strengthen companies across Maryland and beyond,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, senior group publisher of The Daily Record. “In addition, they are full of optimism and passion for helping others in their communities. The Daily Record is pleased to recognize these talented young leaders and looks forward to what the future holds for them.”

Ms. Kumarachandran has previously been selected by The Daily Record to receive the Leadership in Law Award. She has also been named to the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys list of “10 Best,” was listed on the National Advocates list of Top 40 under 40 in Matrimonial and Family Law and has been named a Rising Star in family law by Super Lawyers every year since 2017. She is a graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law and a member of the American Bar Association and the Maryland State Bar Association.

The VIP List honorees will be recognized at an online celebration on Sept. 22 from 6 to 7 p.m. Each of the winners will be celebrated for their achievements through video storytelling.

Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the Sept. 23 issue of The Daily Record and will be available online at
