Strobl & Sharp is pleased to announce Andrew Ayar, Krista Jackson, Marc Melamed and Meredith Taunt, have all been selected as Michigan’s 2013 “Rising Stars” by Super Lawyers magazine. Other Strobl & Sharp attorneys were given the highest rating of Super Lawyers by the magazine. They are Lynn Brimer, George Fish, Alan Harnisch, Norman Hyman, and Thomas J. Strobl.
“We are proud to have four Rising Stars in our firm– less than three percent of eligible candidates are selected. This level of professional accomplishment and peer recognition so early in their careers was well-earned through much hard work,” says Strobl & Sharp Managing Partner, Thomas J. Strobl.
Rising Stars are considered the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state — those who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less.
Strobl has also been honored by Super Lawyers magazine for the past seven years for his legal skills in the areas of Business/Corporate, Banking, and Mergers & Acquisitions.
“I’m pleased that others in the industry recognize the deep expertise and strong bench at Strobl & Sharp. We have been recognized for excellence in the majority of our practice areas,” shares Strobl.
The Strobl & Sharp honorees’ practice areas recognized by Super Lawyers are Business/Corporate, Banking, Environmental, Mergers & Acquisitions, Tax, Bankruptcy & Creditor/Debtor Rights, Business Litigation, General Litigation, Insurance Coverage, Criminal Defense: White Collar, Land Use/Zoning, Real Estate, Estate Planning & Probate, and Non-Profit.
No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state can achieve the designation of Super Lawyer. Super Lawyers selects attorneys using peer nominations and evaluations along with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.
