March 31, 2021 (San Diego) – Nineteen Procopio attorneys from twelve practice areas were named by their peers as 2021 San Diego Super Lawyers or Rising Stars. Each year, no more than 5% of the lawyers in the state of California are named a Super Lawyer, and only 2.5% of the lawyers in the state are named Rising Stars.

Super Lawyers 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 selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. 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.
