Congratulations to Christian, Dichter & Sluga associate Alison R. Christian who was selected for inclusion on the 2012 Super Lawyers Southwest Rising Stars list, an honor for young lawyers who have shown excellence in their practice areas. The designation of Rising Star is given to only the top 2.5 percent of lawyers in Arizona or New Mexico who are either 40 years old or younger or in practice for ten years or less. Ms. Christian was honored in the Insurance Law category where 4 of the firm’s lawyers are recognized as either Southwest Super Lawyers or Rising Stars honorees.
Partners, Doug Christian, Steve Dichter and Gena Sluga have also been selected for inclusion on the 2012 Southwest Super Lawyers list of honorees. Steve and Doug have been honored in their practice areas of White Collar Criminal Defense and Insurance Law since the recognition’s inception in 2007. Congratulations to Gena who received this recognition for the first time this year in the Insurance Law category. Southwest Super Lawyers’ selections are based upon a survey of 18,000 active lawyers in Arizona and New Mexico as well as staff research and evaluation of a nominee’s background and experience in her or his area of practice. Only 5 percent of the lawyers in Arizona are listed in Southwest Super Lawyers.
