*For attorneys licensed to practice in New Jersey: No aspect of this advertisement has been approved by the Supreme Court of New Jersey. Please visit the Super Lawyers Selection Process for a detailed description of the Super Lawyers and Rising Stars selection methodology.

**Indicates attorneys selected to the 2020 Super Lawyers and Rising Stars Women's Editions. 

The selections are a result of independent research by the team at Super Lawyers to determine no more than the top 5 percent of legal professionals in each geographic region. No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in each geographic region are selected by the research team to the Rising Stars list.

Super Lawyers, part of Thomson Reuters, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area.  Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators including verdicts and settlements, transactions, representative clients, experience, honors and awards, special licenses and certifications, position within the law firm, bar and other professional activity, pro bono and community service as a lawyer, scholarly lectures and writings, education and employment background, and other outstanding achievements.

The Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city and regional publications across the country. For more information about Super Lawyers, visit
