Rockville, MD (December 20, 2022) — Stein Sperling announced today that 35 of the firm’s attorneys have been selected to the 2023 Maryland Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists.

Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state of Maryland are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor. Super Lawyers, part of Thomson Reuters, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The Rising Stars recognition is awarded to the top 2.5 percent of younger attorneys in the state, who are under 40 years old and/or have practiced for fewer than 10 years.

The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
