Star Tribune Profiles Adine Momoh's Appointment to HCBA Leadership Track
Stinson Leonard Street LLP attorney Adine Momoh was featured in a recent story in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Momoh joined the executive committee of the Hennepin County Bar Association putting her on track to be both the youngest and the first black woman to serve as the HCBA's president in 2018-19.
Momoh said her experience with the organization helped her make the decision to become part of the leadership track.
“I have a sense of what members need and what new lawyers want. I also have a sense of how we can increase involvement of attorneys of color and add value for them. And help attract and retain them," she said.
She has been involved with the HCBA since 2009. Most recently she served as the co-chair of the Civil Litigation Section and as a member of the Board of Directors. In 2014 she was nominated by the HCBA's New Lawyers Section for the National Outstanding Young Lawyer award from the American Bar Association. She was one of two finalists for the recognition.
