Natoya McGhie, a vice president of the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association, was honored as “Star Under 40” during a ceremony at Sirico’s on 13th Avenue earlier this month.

McGhie, a graduate of John Jay College and New York Law School, is the principal court attorney for Judge Jane Tully in the Kings County Supreme Court, Criminal Term. She began her career with the Legal Aid Society, and has also served as a mentor to students from New York Law School through the school’s Criminal Defense Clinic.

As vice president of the BWBA, McGhie is set to become the organization’s president in 2020. She is currently the co-chair of the BWBA’s Young Lawyers Committee and its Mentorship Committee. She also works with law school students, and prospective students, through the Brooklyn Pipeline Initiative.

“Natoya is one of the BWBA’s shining stars,” said Hon. Joanne Quinones. “She’s a perfect example of the role that mentoring plays in the development of future leaders. Since she joined the BWBA in 2012, Natoya has been an active member on both the chapter and state level.

“She is perhaps best known as one of the chairs of the Mentorship and Young Lawyers Committees,” Quinones continued. “Through events such as the speaker series, a paint and sip, and an axe-throwing outing, she has been instrumental in encouraging young lawyers to join the BWBA.”
