The 2016 Thomas A. Mesereau Cup, a national award for Outstanding Criminal Defense, was recently presented to Kay Anderle.  The award is given by the Litigation Counsel of America, an elite invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society representing less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers.

According to the LCA: Each year the LCA awards the Thomas A. Mesereau Cup to a deserving lawyer, judge or scholar practicing in the area of criminal law.  The award recognizes excellence and commitment at the highest level.  Candidates are generally leaders in the legal profession who seek justice for or preside over individuals within the court system whose rights and freedoms depend on the selfless and courageous efforts of committed professionals.  The award honors visionaries who have created constituencies and inspired, mobilized and/or unified others in seeking equity and equality within the system and in furtherance of the common good.  Recipients are those whose leadership has had national or international impact, who practice the art of advocacy at a preeminent standing and who are committed to those they represent in the pursuits to which they are assigned.
