2021 Super Lawyers & Rising Stars

By Hoge Fenton | 07.8.2021 | Firm Post

Hoge Fenton is pleased to announce that fifteen of our attorneys have been named 2021 Northern California Super Lawyers and Rising Stars.

Only 5% of lawyers in California are selected to receive the Super Lawyers honor, and only 2.5% of the lawyers in California are selected to receive the Rising Stars honor. Our attorneys have been identified by their peers for their outstanding work in the profession. Selections to Super Lawyers are made using a multi-phase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of the candidates, and peer reviews by practice area.

“Super Lawyers, better people,” said Daniel W. Ballesteros, Managing Shareholder at Hoge Fenton. “So proud to have fifteen of our attorneys recognized as Super Lawyers and Rising Stars. Prouder still that our lawyers reflect the communities in which they practice.”
