The New York Law Journal congratulates the 44 young lawyers chosen as 2013 Rising Stars by an esteemed panel of judges (See panel members below).

Our panel reviewed more than 200 nominations of attorneys 40 and under who have established a record of accomplishments and demonstrated that they are top contributors to the practice of law and their communities.
