Michelle Agulia Allan '96

Michelle Agulia Allan ’96 has been selected for the Legal Intelligencer’s 2011 edition of “Lawyers on the Fast Track.”

Michelle is a partner in the that Medicare Compliance Practice Group of Burns White LLC.

With the help of the editorial staff of the Legal Intelligencer, a group of eight evaluation panelists from across the commonwealth selected twenty-seven Pennsylvania attorneys for what it calls “the future leaders of the state’s legal community.”

Of the five attorneys selected from Pittsburgh, Michelle was the only woman. She is a 2002 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and a 1996 graduate of IUP. Prior to attending law school, Ms. Allan covered general and suburban news for the Pittsburgh Tribune Review and Murrysville Star.

Ms. Allan is the fourth Burns White attorney to be selected as a “Lawyer on the Fast Track” in the ten-year history of the award. Each “Lawyers on the Fast Track” nominee had to be under the age of forty. The panelists also paid particular attention to four areas: development of the law, advocacy, community contributions, and service to the bar.

Full profiles of this year’s honorees will be included in a supplement published in the Legal Intelligencer on Tuesday, September 27, 2011. The winners will also be honored at a dinner at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia on November 3.
