Hoge Fenton is pleased to announce that a record number of our attorneys have been named 2020 Northern California Super Lawyers and Rising Stars. This year’s selection of 16 attorneys is a record number of Super Lawyers for the firm.

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.

“I am so proud of my colleagues. In our 17 th year of recognition, 16 of our lawyers have been recognized as Super Lawyers and Rising Stars,” said Daniel W. Ballesteros, Managing Shareholder at Hoge Fenton. “This is not a surprise, we hire and develop lawyers who are committed to professionalism and legal excellence.
