Mica Nguyen Worthy, an attorney in the Charlotte office of Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP, is named in the Lawyers of Color Second Annual Hot List. The Hot List recognizes young attorneys who are excelling in the legal profession. Mica was one of ten attorneys selected from the Charlotte market to receive this award.

Mica has represented clients in general liability and workers’ compensation cases since 2008.  She is a council member of the N.C. Bar Association’s International Law & Practice Section, a 2013 graduate of the N.C. Bar Association’s Leadership Academy and a 2012 graduate of the Mecklenburg County’s Bar Leadership Institute.

Honorees will be profiled in Lawyers Of Color’s Hot List 2014 Issue which will be published July 28. The Southern Region honorees were honored at a reception hosted by Greenberg Traurig in Atlanta today.

The honorees were chosen through a two-pronged process. The selection committee spent months reviewing nominations and researching bar association publications and legal blogs in order to identify promising candidates. Nominations from mentors, peers, and colleagues were accepted. The selection committee also made editorial picks of attorneys who had noteworthy accomplishments, especially those active in legal pipeline initiatives.

Lawyers of Color (LOC) was initially founded as On Being A Black Lawyer but now also produces publications for lawyers of South Asian American, Pacific Asian American, Hispanic, and Native American heritage. LOC has been recognized by the American Bar Association, National Black Law Students Association, and National Association of Black Journalists.
