National Law Journal recognizes Linda Singer among 2017 Litigation Trailblazers

Motley Rice is proud to announce that Linda Singer, lead of the firm’s Public Client practice group and a former Attorney General for the District of Columbia, has been included in the 2017 issue of The National Law Journal’s Litigation Trailblazers & Pioneers. The publication honored 25 attorneys deemed to have “shown a deep passion and perseverance in pursuit of their mission, having achieved remarkable successes along the way.”     

Recognized for her commitment to public interest work, Singer’s legal “Trails Blazed” include representing the first jurisdiction to file litigation aimed at curbing the effects of the opioid crisis in 2014, Santa Clara County. Led by Singer, Motley Rice continues to represent the County in the opioid litigation as well as nearly 40 additional states and local governments.

“Being recognized for pursuing interests that I care deeply about and are of such significance to communities nationwide is a great honor,” Singer said. “Loosening the opioid epidemic’s grip on our nation is a cause that has been years in the making. With lives hanging in the balance, this work for the sake of public health could not be more pressing and I am proud to be a part of it.”    

Each year, The National Law Journal features several Trailblazer issues and accepts nominees from readers for who they believe made an impact in their respective practice areas. The publication’s editor reviews the nominees and selects 20 to 25 nominees for each practice area.  A half-page profile for each honoree is included in The National Law Journal’s Litigation Trailblazers & Pioneers.
