LOS ANGELES – LAWFUEL – The Law Firm Newswire – Seven McGuireWoods LLP lawyers were named “Southern California Rising Stars 2007” by Rising Stars magazine, a special publication of Law & Politics magazine. The findings are to be published in the magazine’s July 2007 issue.
As part of the selection process, Law & Politics mailed ballots to the most recently named “Southern California Super Lawyers.” The lawyers are asked to nominate the best up-and-coming lawyers who are 40 years of age or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less, and whom they have personally observed in action. In addition, the Law & Politics attorney-led research department reviews the nominees’ credentials based on a set of evaluation criteria, including confirmation of their license and any history of disciplinary action (which would remove them from consideration). To ensure a diverse and well-balanced list, the research staff considers factors such as firm size, practice area and geographic location.
The McGuireWoods lawyers who were named “Southern California Rising Stars 2007” are located in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Their names and practice areas are:
Lisa A. Atty, Real Estate Transactions (Senior Counsel)
Sabrina A. Beldner, Employment & Labor (Associate)
