LANCASTER, Pa., December 10, 2020 — Saxton & Stump attorney Kiandra D. Steffy has been named to the National Black Lawyers’ Top 40 under 40, a recognition given by invitation only to influential African American lawyers from across the country who excel in their respective practice areas and promote diversity.
The National Black Lawyers (NBL) is a professional organization founded to promote legal excellence and equality and provides its members with professional resources as well as access to a national network of attorneys who are passionate about sharing their knowledge.

As a participant of the Clemency Project 2014, which allows non-violent, low-level offenders to receive pro bono representation, Steffy successfully petitioned for an incarcerated individual to receive a commuted sentence after being granted clemency by former President Barack Obama. She is the first member of the National Bar Association to file a successful petition for clemency.
