Higgs Fletcher & Mack, a San Diego-based, full-service law firm for more than 75 years, announced today that 21 of its attorneys were named 2017 San Diego “Super Lawyers” and “Rising Stars.”

Super Lawyers 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.

“These attorneys were more than deserving of being named to this prestigious list,” said Higgs Fletcher & Mack’s Managing Partner John Morrell. “As proud as we are of our Super Lawyers, we’re equally as excited for our younger attorneys who were recognized as well. They are all at the top of their game!”

The 21 lawyers cited in the annual listing were recognized for the following practice areas:

2017 Super Lawyers

2017 Rising Stars

Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third-party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement and selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process except the candidate must be either 40-years-old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list. To learn more, visit http://www.superlawyers.com.
