All attorneys at Levy Vinick Burrell Hyams LLP have been selected to the 2021 Super Lawyers list published in Super Lawyers Magazine. This is the fifth consecutive year and the first with our new Of Counsel Rebecca Kagin and Wendy Musell.
Once again, associate attorneys Katherine Smith and Hilary Hammell were both selected to the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list. It is the fourth consecutive year for Katherine Smith and the third consecutive year for Hilary Hammell.
Among those recognized, Leslie Levy, Sharon Vinick, Jean Hyams, and Wendy Musell were named to both the Top 100 Super Lawyers list as well as the Top 50 Women Super Lawyers list for Northern California for 2021.
Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive the Super Lawyers recognition. And no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected as Rising Stars.
Even with such a small percentage of attorneys around the state featured annually on the Super Lawyers list, the honor has been bestowed multiple times on the LVBH partners. This is the fourteenth year Leslie F. Levy has been named to the Super Lawyers list, the fifteenth year for Sharon Vinick, the ninth year for Darci Burrell, and the seventeenth year for Jean Hyams.
Super Lawyers rates outstanding lawyers from multiple practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area.
