Two U&K Attorneys Named to 2023 Power 20 Family Law List
Congratulations to Leah Tarantino Cintineo and Jennifer A. Shoemaker for being selected to The Daily Record's Power 20 Family Law 2023 list. The Power 20 list showcases power players in the Western New York legal community who are recognized as leaders in their area of practice.
"The people on this list help clients navigate some of the most challenging times in their lives. They guide people through divorce, child custody and support, adoption, prenups and postnups, and more. The need for strong legal advocacy has been heightened over the past three years as COVID-19 has added even more stress and uncertainty to processes that were already full of both. These attorneys continued to serve their clients admirably while navigating new rules resulting from the pandemic," stated Ben Jacobs, Associate Publisher and Editor of The Daily Record.
