SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA – The results are in, and five Klinedinst attorneys in the firm’s Sacramento office have been honored in the 2023 edition of Northern California Super Lawyers®. The publication recognized Natalie P. Vance, Michael W. Carruth, and Ian A. Rambarran, with Jonathan C. Cahill and Raja Hafed named as Rising Stars.

Every year, the editors at Super Lawyers publish their selections for outstanding lawyers in major markets across the nation. Each publication cycle begins with a survey among licensed lawyers in good stranding, asking for survey recipients to nominate attorneys they believe demonstrate excellence in the legal profession. Once the results are collected, the lawyers that received nominations are then vetted by researchers and a review committee. The final list is then published, with fewer than 5% of attorneys in California ever being featured in the publication.
