Duane Morris Partner Cyndie M. Chang Receives Trailblazer Award

Duane Morris LLP attorney Cyndie M. Chang, managing partner of the firm’s Los Angeles office, has been honored with the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association’s first-ever Trailblazer Award.

Organized in 1975, the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association (SCCLA) was one of the first Asian Pacific American (APA) bar associations formed in the United States. SCCLA provides support for Chinese and APA lawyers, jurists and law students throughout Southern California, and also participates in statewide and nationwide initiatives that advance diversity and the interests of all minorities.

Each year, SCCLA recognizes a legal practitioner based upon his or her individual achievement and contribution to the APA legal community. Chang was selected to receive the Trailblazer Award based on achievements in her legal career, her championing of issues affecting immigrants and other marginalized communities, and overall dedication to the APA community.
