The objective of Super Lawyers is to create a credible listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. We are very proud to announce that Kazan Law attorneys have been named to the prestigious Northern California Super Lawyers list for the tenth consecutive year.
Attorneys are selected by Super Lawyers using a multiphase selection process which received a patent from The United States Patent and Trademark Office in April 2013. The patent is a distinction which demonstrates credibility as an impartial third-party rating system.
Attorneys are nominated by peers and evaluations are combined with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.
Attorneys named to Northern California Super Lawyers represent no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state. We are honored to have these five Kazan Law attorneys included in this list:
Steven Kazan: Super Lawyer 2004-2013
David McClain: Super Lawyer 2004-2013
Joseph Satterley: Super Lawyer 2013 (selected in Kentucky)
Gordon Greenwood: Super Lawyer 2004, 2006-2013
James Oberman: Super Lawyer 2010-2011, 2013
Super Lawyers Rising Stars recognize the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state. The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, except 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. No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to this list. We are very proud of the four Kazan Law asbestos attorneys named Rising Stars this year:
