RICHARD ABEND has been named to the New York Super Lawyers Rising Star list as one of the top attorneys in New York State for 2011.
No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected to the list.
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, 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 annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area.
The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers magazines and in New York, within a special section of the New York Times Magazine.
