“Higgs Fletcher & Mack prides itself on bringing together some of San Diego’s best and brightest attorneys, and we are proud to see so many of our attorneys honored,” said Steve Cologne, the Firm’s Managing Partner and a Super Lawyer.
“Each of the attorneys named to the 2020 Rising Star list does extraordinary work on behalf of their clients, and they deserve this recognition.”
Super Lawyers is a rating system created by Thompson Reuters of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators, which include criteria such as verdicts/settlements, experience, honors/awards, special licenses/certifications, and pro bono and community service.
Each year, the prestigious industry accolades are awarded to the top lawyers on a state-by-state basis. “Rising Stars” are lawyers that are 40 years old or younger or have been in practice for 10 years or less.
