The spirit of excellence is alive and well at Lopez McHugh as three attorneys from the firm’s Philadelphia office extend their tenure as Super Lawyers and Rising Stars.
Achieving this rank is no small feat. As detailed on the Super Lawyers website, the selection process involves multiple steps and tiers. Lawyers are nominated by their peers and evaluated against an exacting set of criteria as research is conducted on each attorney by the Super Lawyers organization. Once per year, representatives from each state are then asked to make their selections, and only those attorneys that make the cut achieve Super Lawyer status.
This year that Super Lawyer designation went to two Lopez McHugh Philadelphia attorneys: firm principal partner James J. McHugh, Jr. and attorney Carrie R. Capouellez. Attorney Joshua Mankoff was also recognized as a Rising Star.
Mr. McHugh has been a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer since 2005. He was also a New Jersey Super Lawyer from 2006 through 2014 and has been counted among the top 100 lawyers in the city of Philadelphia. He holds an AVVO rating of “Superb” and is highly regarded at both the regional and national level.
Ms. Capouellez has been a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer since 2014. Her work has benefited hundreds of Lopez McHugh clients injured by the pharmaceutical industry and she has worked tirelessly in leadership positions on a number of key litigations at both the regional and national level. Holding membership in numerous bar associations as well as the American Association of Justice, Carrie is a tireless champion of those whose lives have been impacted by the carelessness and greed of others.
Lopez McHugh attorney Joshua Mankoff is recognized in this year’s Super Lawyers announcements as a Rising Star. Rising Stars earn their designation by being counted among the top 2.5% of lawyers either under the age of 40 or having practiced law for less than 10 years. This is Mr. Mankoff’s second year as a Rising Star.
Super Lawyers and Rising Star designations are just a sample of the leadership that Lopez McHugh attorneys display in the legal world every single day. We are committed to our roles at the forefront of litigations taking place on regional and national stages all across the country and continue to work tirelessly to hold those companies accountable that would put profits above the safety of the American public.
We congratulate our Super Lawyers and Rising Star and wish them continued success!
