Attorney Katerina Kramarchyk of Harris Beach PLLC has been named Outstanding Young Lawyer in New York by the New York State Bar Association.
The association’s Young Lawyers Section annually honors one or more of its members for outstanding service to both the community and legal profession. The Outstanding Young Lawyer Award recognizes an attorney who has actively practiced less than 10 years and shows “a distinguished record of commitment to the finest traditions of the Bar through public service and professional activities.”
Katerina, a member of the Business and Commercial Litigation Group, is deeply involved in a host of community and legal initiatives. She currently serves as Diversity Co-Chair of the Greater Rochester Association for Women Attorneys, and has held roles on the Board—including on the Executive Board—since 2018.
She has also served as a Trustee to the Monroe County Bar Association for the past two years and was Chair of its Young Lawyers Section for the 2020-21 bar year. She has served as Pro Bono Counsel for the American Board of Trial Advocates Volunteer Program, a Pro Bono Volunteer for the Volunteer Legal Services Project, and a Volunteer Attorney for Rochester Teen Court.
A 2013 cum laude graduate of Albany Law School at Union University, Katerina also earned a Master’s in Business Administration during the same period from Union University.
“We are thrilled that Kat is being recognized for what we already come to appreciate: she is a shining star in her community, and an outstanding lawyer as well,” said Heidi Schult Gregory, Rochester Office Managing Partner at Harris Beach. “She really impressed the judges with her high energy, incredible legal acumen, leadership and commitment to the community.”
As a litigator, Katerina provides counsel to a wide range of diverse organizations including large and small technology companies, manufacturers, sureties, banks, hospitals and health care facilities, commercial property owners, and school districts.
