Congratulations Ethan McQuinn for making the 2016 Colorado Super Lawyers Rising Stars List for Personal Injury Plaintiff! About Rising Stars: The Rising Stars list is developed using the same patented multiphase selection process used for the Super Lawyers list except: To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. While up to 5 percent of the lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars. All attorneys first go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list, but meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements, then go through the Rising Stars selection process.
