About Super Lawyers
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Only five percent of the lawyers in Northern California are named to the Super Lawyers list.

The Rising Stars List highlights attorneys who are either 40 years old or younger, or have been practicing for 10 years or less. Using a patented vetting process based on peer nominations, independent research across 12 key categories, and extensive nominations, the Rising Stars list makes up only 2.5 percent of the original pool of candidates.
