Super Lawyers has named three Hirschfeld Kraemer associates to its roster of Southern California “Rising Stars” for 2020. Benjamin Treger, Derek Ishikawa, and Ferry Eden Lopez have all been named 2020 Southern California Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” in the areas of employment law and/or employment litigation.
According to Super Lawyers, attorneys are selected using a multi-phase selection process combining professional achievement, peer nominations, and independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators, and honorees are limited to just 5% of practicing private lawyers in any given region.
“Rising Stars” are lawyers who meet the criteria above, have been in practice 10 years or less, and are younger than 40. The list of Rising Stars is even more selective in that it comprises just 2.5% of the practicing California attorneys.
This is Ben’s second Rising Star honor, Derek’s fifth, and Ferry’s third. Congratulations to all three!
