Mr. Lewis joins an exclusive list of the top up-and-coming attorneys in Northern California for 2012, and Frank Penney Injury Lawyers is proud to have him as part of the team.
Attorneys selected for inclusion in the list of Super Lawyers and Rising Stars are nominated by their peers before undergoing “rigorous” evaluations in a number of areas of “peer recognition and professional achievement,” according to Super Lawyers selection process.
