40 under Forty winners (from left) Amanda Marie Baer, Nicholas J. Carbone, Amanda Misilo and Kola A. Akindele.

Baer joined Mirick O'Connell in 2011, after graduating magna cum laude from Georgetown, where she served as senior editor for the Georgetown Journal of International Law and was a global law fellow. As a litigator, she represents employers in state and federal court and before administrative agencies, while providing day-to-day client advice.

Baer serves on the board of the YWCA of Central Massachusetts. She is married to Jared Baer, and they have a two-year-old daughter, Madeleine.

What will the title of your memoirs be? "Iced Coffee Diaries" – iced coffee plays an undeniably central role in my life, and the first morning sip signals the official start of my day.

What would you like to tell your 10-year-old self? Enjoy. You will have a wonderful childhood, so savor it.

The people I work with would tell you I am... a tenacious litigator – determined, engaging, warm, friendly and intelligent. (This is actually what they said – I didn't even bribe them!)

If you could have dinner with any four people, who would they be? Francis Silk (my grandfather), Abraham Lincoln, Sandra Day O'Connor, Saint Thomas Aquinas.
