Manning & Kass Attorneys Named as 2015 San Diego Super Lawyers and Rising Stars

Three San Diego Manning & Kass attorneys have been named as 2015 San Diego Super Lawyers, and two more have been named as 2015 San Diego 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. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. Lawyers may nominate attorneys in their own firm, but these nominations count only if each in-firm nomination is matched by at least one out-firm nomination.

Their objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for those searching for legal counsel. The final published Super Lawyers list represents no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state.

These San Diego partners were named 2015 Super Lawyers in the following areas:
Appellate Litigation, Darin L. Wessel
Employment & Labor, Kenneth S. Kawabata
Employment Litigation: Defense, Al De La Cruz

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. While up to 5 percent of the lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars. These San Diego associates were named 2015 Rising Stars in the following areas:
Employment Litigation: Defense, Rebeca Valenzuela
Workers' Compensation, Jason J. Doshi
