Madeline Gendreau 2021 Elite Lawyer Scholarship Winner

Elite Lawyer is pleased to announce that Madeline Gendreau has been selected as the winner of our Spring 2021 Scholarship program. Madeline was chosen out of more than 100 students who sent in video or written essays. In order to be considered, qualified applicants needed to have a current GPA of at least 3.0 and submit either a 500-word essay or a two-minute video presentation that answered the following question: What positive change are you working to bring to your community in the new year? After submitting a considerate and compelling application, Madeline will receive $500 to put toward her undergraduate degree. She is a sophomore in the Honors College, double majoring in Environmental Sciences and Geosciences with a minor in Climate Studies at Boise State University. 

Bringing a Positive Change to Her Community

Even at a young age, Madeline always knew she wanted to make a difference in her life by helping others who are in need. With a spirit of giving instilled by her parents and grandparents early on, she helped improve handicapped access at her church and delivered meals to those in need. Using her influence as the current Miss Boise and her skills as a competitive swimmer, Madeline recognized a need within the community based on statistics that Idaho has the second-highest rate of accidental drownings among children under age 5 in the country. This is partly due to the fact that Idaho has over 100 miles of irrigation canals located across the state.

Working with a local swim team and other organizations, Madeline offers free or low-cost swim lessons to those less fortunate in Boise and the surrounding area. According to Madeline, it is an ideal way to connect with younger kids who need to learn water safety awareness through life-saving skills as well as a healthy and active lifestyle. “Throughout my volunteer experiences as a young girl and my passion for helping others, I am determined to bring a positive change to my community,” Gendreau stated. 

After graduation, Madeline hopes to work in NASA’s Climate Division to further study carbon in the environment and understand how carbon stores are changing as the Earth’s average yearly temperature increases. In addition, she would like to attend law school and become an environmental lawyer specializing in climate law and environmental justice. Ultimately, she intends to run for the United States Congress and assist in writing climate and environmental legislation.

Elite Lawyer provides information about law firms’ practice areas and the common legal issues that people throughout the United States face.

In this digital age, people use the Internet to search for everything, from restaurant menus to buying a vehicle, and even finding an attorney. Promoting yourself online is essential these days to have a successful practice. Whether you are trying to boost your online presence, connect with potential clients, or improve your online reputation, digital profiles are a critical part of being found on the Internet. Many attorneys and law firms are members of online legal directories. These resources can be invaluable tools for locating legal professionals who practice in certain areas of the law. The Elite Lawyer directory contains a listing of exceptional attorneys in numerous practice areas. It has grown since its inception in 2018, expanding to include outstanding attorneys from all 50 states.  

Elite Lawyer Directory

Elite Lawyer is a directory and rating service that awards and recognizes attorneys all over the United States who have displayed extraordinary competence in their practice area and who have been acknowledged by their fellow peers in the legal community. The Elite Lawyer directory provides a comprehensive and credible resource for attorneys and a user-friendly directory for consumers who are looking to hire a highly respected lawyer in their geographic area. 

Elite Lawyer uses a rigorous selection process to ensure that all attorneys listed in our directory have demonstrated excellence in the practice of law and a commitment to their clients and their communities. Selection as an Elite Lawyer shows that an attorney is among the top-rated attorneys in the United States and has the experience and dedication that will ensure their clients' legal issues are handled satisfactorily.

Tips for Creating a Professional Profile

A first impression can go a long way in determining a future relationship. This applies to many areas of life, including a profile related to your career and professional achievements. When someone needs legal assistance, he or she may turn to the Internet to find an attorney. That is why it is crucial to have a clean, concise, and pertinent profile so potential clients will want to hire you. Here are a few ways to make a professional and enticing profile:

  1. Take a professional picture: A clear, professional-looking portrait of yourself is much better than a candid shot or selfie that you take on your own. A photographer can adjust the lighting and recommend the best poses, clothing/attire, and background to produce an eye-catching and complimentary profile picture.  

  2. Include accurate information: Your profile on a legal directory should contain important information about your credentials, as well as your practice areas, office locations, phone numbers, email addresses, and anything else that might make someone who is looking for legal help want to hire you.  

  3. Provide interesting tidbits: A little personal information can go a long way in making you seem relatable to prospective clients. You do not need to disclose in-depth details about your family or personal life, but you can include hobbies or any interests outside of the law. 

  4. Keep your status updated: It is important to continually monitor your profile to make sure it is accurate and reflects any updates or changes to your qualifications, such as new Bar admissions or recently published works.
