O’Pray Named to 2016 Irish Legal 100: 40 Under Forty List

Counsel Eileen O’Pray (Menlo Park-Tax) has been selected to be part of the inaugural 2016 Irish Legal 100: 40 Under Forty, a list of rising stars of Irish descent in the US legal profession. 

In late June, a special print edition of the Irish Voice newspaper will be published featuring the 2016 Irish Legal 100: 40 Under Forty honorees. In addition, an exclusive Irish Legal 100 June event and awards ceremony in Philadelphia will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Irish Legal 100, founded in 2008 by the Irish Voice newspaper in New York, is an annual compilation of the most distinguished legal professionals in the United States who share one common bond: pride in their Irish roots. The list includes attorneys, legal scholars and members of the judiciary who have distinguished themselves in their fields of endeavor. Past honorees include US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Anthony Kennedy, US Ambassador to Ireland Kevin O’Malley, Georgetown Law Dean William Treanor, CBS News correspondent Erin Moriarty and many more, as well as attorneys from some of the country’s top law firms.
