The county's top lawyers were recognised at an awards ceremony last night.
More than 300 people attended Leicestershire Law Society's Legal Awards at Athena, in Leicester, where winners were announced across five categories.
Freeth Cartwright, which has an office in Colton Square, in the city centre, scooped the law firm of the year award, which was sponsored by Handelsbanken.
Sam McGinty, who works for North West Leicestershire District Council, was named junior solicitor of the year, a category sponsored by De Montfort University. The prize for legal executive of the year, sponsored by Severn Trent Searches, was won by Dawn Slow, of Affinity Law, in New Walk, Leicester.
Solicitor of the year, sponsored by the University of Leicester, was Mike Cummins of Cummins Solicitors and the barrister of the year category, sponsored by Wesleyan for Lawyers, was won by John Hallissey, at KCH Garden Square chambers.
The 153-year-old legal society has 500 members and has been running its awards since 2007.
This year's event was held in association with the Leicester Mercury with a judging panel which included Sheree Peaple at DMU Law School, David Monk from the University of Leicester and district judge Vera Stamenkovich.
Helen Johnson, Leicestershire Law Society president, said: "The society is indebted to sponsors and patrons, without whom the awards would not have taken place."
The evening raised money for Warning Zone, an educational charity.
