Daily Record Leadership In Law

Leadership in Law Awards recognize Maryland’s legal professionals – lawyers and judges – whose dedication to their occupation and to their communities is outstanding.

“The 2020 Leadership in Law honorees are exceptional in the work they do professionally as well through community service and mentoring,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “They are to be commended for their commitment to the legal profession and for the leadership they demonstrate in the community. The Daily Record is pleased to honor them.”

Ms. Kumarachandran has earned a number of distinctions throughout her career. She was recognized as a Maryland Rising Star in Family Law by Super Lawyers from 2017 to 2020. In 2017, she was named to the Top 40 Under 40 in Matrimonial and Family Law by the National Advocates, and in 2015 the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys named her to their list of 10 Best Attorneys for Client Satisfaction.

Ms. Kumarachandran is a member of the American Bar Association Family Law Section and the Maryalnd State Bar Association. She earned her Juris Doctor from the University of Baltimore.

The top winner of this year’s Leadership in Law Awards will be announced at the celebration event May 21 at the BWI Hilton. The honoree will be determined by a vote of this year’s Leadership in Law winners.

In addition, The Daily Record ‘s Leadership in Law Awards include honors recognizing up-and-coming legal professionals through Generation J.D. and legal professionals with exemplary careers through the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Nominations for all the awards were received from The Daily Record’s readers in addition to area law firms, bar associations, chambers of commerce and the business and legal communities at large. Nominees were asked to complete an application that outlined their career accomplishments, community involvement and mentoring activities that would distinguish them as outstanding leaders in the law. Winners were selected by a panel of legal and business leaders.

The Daily Record launched the Leadership in Law Awards in 2001 as a way to recognize the outstanding work being done by members of the legal community throughout Maryland.

“This year’s Leadership in Law honorees are dedicated to the legal profession, to their communities and to mentoring. The impact they have had professionally and on their communities is stellar,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “Their tremendous accomplishments make them leaders in the law community in Maryland, and The Daily Record is honored to recognize them.”

The 2020 Leadership in Law Awards will be presented May 21 at a reception and dinner starting at 5 p.m. at the BWI Hilton, 1739 West Nursery Road in Linthicum Heights. The event hashtag is #TDRawards.

Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the May 22 issue of The Daily Record and will be available online at
