Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a research-driven, peer influenced rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The patented selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.  The final list of Northern California Super Lawyers represents no more than five percent of the lawyers in the region.  The Rising Stars list is developed using the same patented multiphase selection process used for the Super Lawyers list.  To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for ten years or less.  While up to five percent of the lawyers in California are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named as Rising Stars.

The results of the survey appear in Northern California Super Lawyers Magazine, San Francisco magazine, Sacramento magazine, and online at

Congratulations to all of the Firm's Super Lawyers and Rising Stars!
