Karen Persis is honored to be selected as a Rising Star in Florida by Super Lawyers; an honor she has received every year since 2010. 2.5% of eligible attorneys in Florida are selected as a Rising Star each year. To be eligible one must be under the age of 40, or in practice 10 years or less. The selection process includes peer evaluation, nominations by peers, and independent research. Then, a “Blue Ribbon Panel” evaluates the data to select the honorees. Congratulations to all of this year’s honorees!
