Kinzer Named "Up And Coming" Lawyer

12:00AM / Wednesday, September 13, 2006

Pittsfield - A Berkshire County Assistant District Attorney has been named an "Up and Coming Lawyer" by the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly magazine.

Robert Kinzer was given the distinction because he meets the award criteria of having distinguished himself from his peers and having less than 10 years of legal experience. Kinzer was one of 15 attorneys to be given the distinction, which has been awarded yearly for the past decade.

He is expected to be presented with the award during a Sept. 20 ceremony in Boston.

David Frank, a reporter with the magazine, said that Kinzer's expertise in the field of computer crimes contributed to his selection.

District Attorney David F. Capeless termed the recognition "significant."

"I am very pleased for Rob," Capeless said in a written statement.

"This is a significant recognition and he should be proud to be selected from so many other talented young attorneys across the Commonwealth. Rob has applied himself to the field of computer crimes, which is a large and growing field of criminal law that includes exploitations, fraud and harassment, and we are well-served to have his expertise available to serve both victims and police officers."

Kinzer is the second Berkshire County ADA to receive the honor; in 2000, ADA Joan McMenemy was one of five attorneys to be named an "Up and Coming Lawyer." McMenemy is now the second ADA.

"This recognition, along with the same award to Joan McMenemy six years ago, is a testament to the capabilities and quality of work of the prosecutors in the Berkshire District Attorney's Office," Capeless said. "I am blessed with a prosecutorial staff that is second to none and I expect there will be other such awards in the future."
