Spiegel & McDiarmid LLP is proud to announce that partners Cindy Bogorad, David Pomper and Scott Strauss have been selected as 2015 Washington DC Super Lawyers and that Rebecca Baldwin and Katie Mapes have been named as a “Rising Stars.” Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding attorneys from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Lawyers are selected through a process involving independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. For inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate is reviewed using the same evaluations criteria and must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for ten or fewer years. While up to five percent of the lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars. With this selection, over twenty percent of Spiegel attorneys have been designated.
