Whiteman Osterman & Hanna LLP, the Capital Region’s largest law firm, is very pleased to announce that associate attorney Cianna Freeman-Tolbert has been selected for the Albany Business Review’s 40 Under Forty for 2018.  Each year, the Albany Business Review recognizes 40 young professionals and leaders under the age of forty who exemplify leadership in their business accomplishments and community involvement.  Ms. Freeman-Tolbert was selected from over 400 nominations.  Winners were honored at the 40 Under Forty luncheon on May 11 at the Albany Capital Center.
