The Rising Stars of the Plaintiffs Bar recognition honors a select group of young lawyers who are up-and-comers in the plaintiffs bar and have already demonstrated their litigation prowess, service to the community, and impact on their firm. Lawyers are selected through a process of peer nomination and surveys as well as written documentation all of which are evaluated based on an extensive list of criteria including:
- Scoring a “significant” plaintiffs win between January 1, 2021, and January 1, 2022
- Demonstrating an impressive record of wins over the last three to five years
- Devoting a minimum of 50% of litigation resources to plaintiffs work
- Showing innovative approaches to case resolution
The National Law Journal Elite Trial Lawyers winners will be named at an award ceremony in New York on July 13, 2023.
