Madison Attorney Ryan Suerth, a member of the Board of Education has been named a New Leader in the Law for 2012:
At an awards dinner held Friday at The Bond Ballroom in Hartford, Ryan Suerth as recognized as a “New Leader in the Law” by the Connecticut Law Tribune. The event, which included a speech by Governor Dannel P. Malloy, honored 60 Connecticut attorneys under the age of 40 who have distinguished themselves through their legal practice and in public service.
Attorney Suerth has distinguished himself through his public service. He left an attorney position just months before the Iraq War to join the U.S. Army, so he could help soldiers in combat. During his military career, including a one-year deployment to Iraq, he provided hundreds of soldiers with legal assistance on their personal legal matters. He also represented numerous soldiers in criminal trials and appeals.
