14 CDAS Attorneys Make Super Lawyers, Rising Stars, Top 50 Women and Top 100 Lists

Fourteen Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard attorneys were selected for inclusion in the 2016 edition of New York Metro Super Lawyers. Spanning various practice areas, Super Lawyers recognizes the top lawyers in the New York Metro area via a patented multiphase selection process involving peer nomination, independent research and peer evaluation.

Each year, less than 5% of New York City attorneys receive the honor of being named a Super Lawyer and fewer than 2.5% are awarded the Rising Stars distinction. Rising Stars are lawyers who are under 40, or have been in practice for 10 years or less.

In addition to being designated a Super Lawyer again this year, partner Nancy E. Wolff also appears on the Top 50: 2016 Women New York — Metro Super Lawyers and the Top 100: 2016 New York — Metro Super Lawyers lists. Only the New York Metro lawyers who receive the highest point totals during the selection process are further recognized in New York Metro Super Lawyers “Top Lists.”Our attorneys were also recognized in the following categories:
