Napoli Shkolnik PLLC issued the following announcement on Sept. 19.
Napoli Shkolnik PLLC is proud to announce that fourteen of its attorneys have been included in the 2018 Super Lawyers® lists. Included in the 2018 New York Metro Super Lawyers® list are: Partners Marie E. Napoli, Hunter J. Shkolnik, Christopher R. LoPalo, Shayna E. Sacks and Of Counsel to the firm, Paul J. Napoli. Selected to the New York Metro Rising Stars℠ list are Partner Paul B. Maslo and senior associate attorneys Andrew J. Dressel, Salvatore C. Badala, Joseph L. Ciaccio and associate attorneys Brett S. Bustamante, Kristina M. Georgiou, Tate J. Kunkle, and Staesha O. Rath. Appearing on the 2018 California Super Lawyers® list is Partner Jennifer R. Liakos.
Additionally, the women partners of the firm were featured in Super Lawyers® Magazine NY Metro, Top Women in 2018. “The firm’s approach to effective communication and leadership provides clients with the outstanding service synonymous with the Napoli Shkolnik name,” says founding partner Marie Napoli.
Inclusion in the lists of Super Lawyers® is an honor based on an extensive peer review and third party research process. Each candidate is evaluated for peer recognition, achievement and overall professionalism in their area of practice. In the end, no more than five percent of attorneys in each state are selected to the annual list.
In fact, the Super Lawyers process was patented (U.S. Pat. No. 8,412,564) by The United State Patent and Trademark Office in April 2013. This distinction further demonstrates the credibility of this impartial, third-party rating system.
The list of Rising Stars℠ are those attorneys who are aged 40 or younger or attorneys who have been in practice for 10 years or less and have displayed exceptional representation and professionalism. These attorneys are nominated by their peers and evaluated by attorneys as well as third party research. Those with the highest point totals are named to the Rising Stars℠ list- no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in each state.
Their selection process has also been recognized by numerous Courts and Bar Association across the United States. In July 2008, the New Jersey Supreme Court upheld the findings of a Special Master assigned by the court to examine the details of the process. The Special Master reported: “It is absolutely clear that Super Lawyers does not permit a lawyer to buy one’s way onto the list…the selection process is a comprehensive, good-faith and detailed attempt to produce a list of lawyers that have attained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have demonstrated some degree of achievement in their field.”
