O’Melveny’s Brad Garcia and Kendall Turner were named to The National Law Journal’s list of “DC Rising Stars.” The award recognizes the 40 most promising lawyers age 40 and under in the Washington, DC area. “In early 2021, I successfully argued a high-stakes ERISA appeal in the First Circuit for a financial services company,” Garcia said when telling the publication of his biggest win. “The legal issues were complex and the result was particularly rewarding because I had helped shape the strategy and arguments from the start of the case and argued it in the district court as well.” Turner also discussed her biggest win saying, “First, I am proud to have argued before the Eighth Circuit and won an appeal challenging three Arkansas abortion restrictions. And second, I am honored to have had the opportunity to argue before the Supreme Court on behalf of an incarcerated individual and to have secured a unanimous victory in that case.”
