Awards & Honors


Ms. Sanchez is the recipient of the 2010 Hispanic National Bar Association’s Top Lawyers Under 40 Award. This award was given to only 5 recipients nationwide. According to the HNBA:

“Through the Top Lawyers Under Forty Award, the HNBA celebrates and highlights younger HNBA members who have demonstrated professional excellence, integrity, leadership and commitment to the Hispanic community. HNBA members from all segments of the profession, including private practice, government, public interest, academia, and corporate legal departments, are eligible to receive the Award.
“The five (5) award recipients represent the best and brightest Hispanic attorneys in the country. While the HNBA received nominations for many exceptionally qualified attorneys, the recipients of this award have distinguished themselves for their professional endeavors, through their commitment and involvement in the Hispanic community, all at a relatively early stage of their careers.”
