Super Lawyers and Rising Stars are nominated by their peers before undergoing “rigorous” evaluations in a number of areas of “peer recognition and professional achievement,” according to Law & Politics magazine’s selection process.

The objective, the magazine says, is to “create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys.”

Each year, only 5 percent of all state attorneys are named Super Lawyers, and just 2.5 percent become Rising Stars.

Recognition is based on surveys of approximately 52,000 active lawyers in Northern California. Independent research by Law & Politics, and review and recommendation by practice-area panels of top lawyers. Published annually in the August issues of San Francisco Magazine and Northern California Super Lawyers, the select list is a comprehensive and diverse guide of the top five percent of lawyers in Northern California by practice areas.

Weintraub Genshlea Chediak is Sacramento’s leading business and litigation law firm with one of the largest corporate practices in the region. Major practice areas include litigation, real estate, corporate, securities, banking, intellectual property, licensing and distribution, nonprofit law, entertainment, labor and employment, fiduciary abuse, tax, trusts and estates.
