Lacy Katzen would like to congratulate the following attorneys on receiving Super Lawyers and Super Lawyers “Rising Star” recognition in 2018:
2018 Upstate New York Super Lawyers:
Peter T. Rodgers, Karen Schaefer and Jacqueline M. Thomas
2018 Upstate New York Rising Stars:
Robin L. Folts, Rachelle H. Nuhfer, Michael J. Wegman and John M. Wells
Attorneys are selected through peer nominations and evaluations which are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.
The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. All attorneys first go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list, but who meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements, go through the Rising Stars selection process. While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.
Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
