Six Firm Lawyers Named “Super Lawyers”

Six of Wilke Fleury’s attorneys have recently been named either “Super Lawyers” or “Rising Stars” by the 2011 Northern California Super Lawyers Magazine. Phil Birney, Tom Redmon, Ron Lamb,  and Dan Egan were named “Super Lawyers.” It was Mr. Birney’s fifth year to receive this honor, Mr. Redmon’s fourth year, and the second year for Mr. Lamb and Mr. Egan. Dan Baxter and Megan Lewis were named “Rising Stars” for the third year in a row. The list of honorees is compiled through a multi-phase process of peer nominations and evaluations, as well as third party research. Just five percent of the lawyers in California are selected for the “Super Lawyers” designation, and no more than 2.5 percent are named “Rising Stars.” Wilke Fleury congratulates these seven outstanding lawyers on their achievement.
