The Rising Stars designation is for lawyers who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less.
Lawyers are asked to nominate other lawyers whom they have personally observed in action as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.
In addition, an attorney-led research team reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. The research team also confirms that nominees are properly licensed, in good standing with the state licensing agency, and have no history of disciplinary action that would warrant removal from the list.
No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to the list.
All of the lawyers at Lopez McHugh are dedicated to serving clients with the highest standards of dedication and professionalism, and have a proven track record of holding big companies accountable for irresponsible actions that have harmed people.
