For the second year in a row, Northern California Super Lawyers has selected Andrew Magwood for inclusion in its 2012 “Rising Stars” list. To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must nominated by his peers, be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for ten years or less. In addition to a general survey, an attorney-led research team reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in California are named to the Rising Stars list. Mr. Magwood was simultaneously selected to the list of Top Young Attorneys in Northern California in San Francisco Magazine.
Mr. Magwood practices litigation in state and federal courts with an emphasis on employment and injury litigation, and appeals.
