In its annual survey of attorneys who have obtained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement, Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters publication, has selected eight Lieff Cabraser attorneys from our San Francisco office as 2012 Northern California Super Lawyers and another seven Lieff Cabraser attorneys as 2012 Northern California Rising Stars.
The Super Lawyers distinction is awarded to no more than 5% of the approximately 69,000 attorneys in Northern California. Rising Stars are attorneys with significant achievements who are 40 years old or younger or in practice for ten years or less.
Our 2012 Super Lawyers are William Bernstein, Elizabeth J. Cabraser, Kelly M. Dermody, Eric B. Fastiff, Richard M. Heimann, Robert J. Nelson, Michael W. Sobol, and Fabrice N. Vincent. Ms. Cabraser (for the ninth year) and Ms. Dermody (for the sixth year) were selected as Top 100 Northern California Super Lawyers and Top 50 Female Super Lawyers. Ms. Cabraser was also honored as a Top 10 Northern California Super Lawyer.
