About Rising Stars
Rising Stars, a Thomson Reuters business, recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state — those who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. Each year, attorneys are given a general survey and are instructed to nominate lawyers they have personally observed in action, whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel or through other firsthand courtroom observation. In addition to the general survey, an attorney-led research team reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. The point totals from the general survey and research process are then added to arrive at a final tally. The lawyers are ranked by point totals and those with the highest point totals are named to the Rising Stars list.
