"This honor reflects the high standard of excellence that the firm's attorneys provide to our clients," said ECJ Managing Partner Barry MacNaughton. "This honor is particularly compelling because only five percent of attorneys statewide are selected to receive this honor, and the designation is especially meaningful because it comes from our peers in the profession. The Rising Stars award recognizes younger lawyers as they grow in the profession. This honor speaks well as the Firm continues to expand and grow into the future."
The national rating service annually identifies outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
The following ECJ lawyers were selected in their practice areas for 2017:
- Rusty Selmont, a Partner in the firm's Litigation Group, who specializes in Intellectual Property, Entertainment and Media;
- Shane Devins, an Associate in the Real Estate Group;
- Elizabeth Dryden, who is Of Counsel in the Real Estate Group; and,
- Karen Ho, an Associate in the Litigation Group, who has represented clients from a variety of industries, including real estate, food, and healthcare
The achievement is another example of the tremendous recognition the Firm has received on a firm-wide level. In addition to the Rising Stars honors, 15 of the firm's attorneys were recognized in February as Southern California SuperLawyers.
