Fargo Lawyer named to Great Plains Rising Stars

A Fargo lawyer makes the cut for the Great Plains Rising Stars.

Mara Brust has been included on the list created by Super Lawyers.

It is a rating service that scores outstanding lawyers in North Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.

Lawyers must be nominated and then evaluated by peers.

Less than 2.6 percent of lawyers in a state are named to be on the rising list.

“I was really proud. I’m really honored to do the type of work that I do in all my areas of practice are really helping people through the most difficult times in their life. I’m really committed to what I do and to get that recognition is great, ” said Brust.

It is Brust’s fifth year practicing law.

She attended NDSU and went to law school at the University of Virginia.
