Patricia Victory Waterkotte, an attorney with Rusing Lopez & Lizardi, was named one of Tucson’s “40 Under 40”, an award that recognizes young leaders who are making an impact in the community with their professional and charitable work. Additionally, Waterkotte was recently named a 2015 Southwest Super Lawyers Rising Star and was recognized as a “future star” in Benchmark Litigation’s annual guide of the top attorneys in the country. “We recognized Patricia’s talent as a lawyer and a leader when we brought her into our firm two years ago,” said firm founder and partner Mick Rusing. “In the time she’s been with us, she’s demonstrated that she is a rising star among attorneys while also showing a deep interest in making our community better.” Waterkotte’s practice focuses on complex commercial litigation, education and financial services litigation in Arizona and California.
