NORFOLK, Va., June 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Portfolio Recovery Associates, Inc. (PRA), a financial and business services company operating in the U.S. and U.K., today announced that Zulema Green, regional managing attorney, has been named by IMPACT and the National Bar Association as a recipient of the "2013 Nation's Best Advocates: 40 Lawyers Under 40" award.

Nation's Best Advocates recognizes talented individuals age 40 and under within the African American legal community who have achieved prominence and distinction, both professionally and philanthropically.

"We're honored that Zulema has been recognized with this prestigious award," said Neal Stern, executive vice president of operations for PRA. "Her dedication to her profession and advocacy for her community reflects well on PRA's entire internal legal team."

Ms. Green earned a bachelor's degree in preventive medicine from the University of Southern California and a Juris Doctorate degree from Southwestern University School of Law. She joined PRA in 2008 as an associate counsel and currently serves as regional managing attorney for PRA's litigation department, focusing on account litigation and counterclaim defense.
