Tampa, FL – National publication Super Lawyers (superlawyers.com) selected three family law attorneys from Anton Castro Law as Rising Stars. Christina Anton Garcia, Matthew W. Wilson, and Kerstin M. Cochran, marital and family lawyers at Anton Castro Law, were all selected by Super Lawyers as Rising Stars. Only 5% of attorneys are accepted by Super Lawyers, and only 2.5% are selected as Rising Stars, making this a prestigious designation. This award is only given to attorneys under 40 years of age, or who have been in practice for less than 10 years.
Super Lawyers’ selection process of Rising Star attorneys begins with a nomination by peers, managing partner survey, third party feedback and Super Lawyer’s own research team. Lawyers cannot nominate themselves and are prohibited from campaigning for this award. Once nominated, the evaluation process then includes 12 indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition, including verdicts/settlements, clients, awards, special licenses/certifications, experience, position within the law firm, pro bono work and community service, education, scholarly lectures/writings, and other achievements. Finalists are then subject to a peer evaluation before finally being selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star.
Only 2.5% of attorneys in the state of Florida achieve the Rising Star designation, making it particularly exceptional that three of these attorneys are family lawyers at the Tampa firm Anton Castro Law. Christina Anton Garcia, partner at Anton Castro Law and herself selected as a Rising Star, says the achievement speaks to the quality of attorneys at the Tampa firm:
“I, along with Matthew and Kerstin, are truly honored to be selected by Super Lawyers for their Rising Star award. This is a great testament to the quality and tenacity of our marital and family law firm and I’m incredibly proud to be in the company of other outstanding attorneys whose dedication to our clients’ best interest has earned this distinction,” said Anton Garcia.
