Super Lawyers also recognizes Rising Stars, the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state who are 40 years old or younger or who have been practicing for 10 years or less.
Four Kolesar & Leatham attorneys were named Mountain States Rising Stars: Robert Caldwell (business litigation) for the second year in a row; Matthew J. Christian (construction litigation) for the third year in a row; Natalie Cox (business litigation); and Shlomo Sherman (bankruptcy and creditor/debtor rights).
Rising stars are nominated by peers, and their credentials are reviewed by a research staff. According to Super Lawyers, while up to 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.
