Sara Fazio, David C. Hill and Jim D. Lance have each been named a Rising Star by Michigan Super Lawyers.
Super Lawyers, a Thompson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
To be eligible for Rising Stars, a candidate must either be 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in a state are named to Rising Stars. The list is developed using the same rigorous multi-phase selection process as Super Lawyers.
It is the fourth consecutive Rising Star selection for Fazio, whose focus areas are in civil and commercial litigation. She is a magna cum laude graduate of Michigan State University College of Law with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
This is also Hill’s fourth consecutive year being recognized as a Rising Star. He specializes in real estate, business and banking law. Hill holds degrees from Wayne State University Law School and Michigan State University Business College.
This is the first Rising Star distinction for Jim Lance, who specializes in real estate law, elder law and civil litigation. Lance holds a juris doctor degree from Michigan State University Detroit College of Law and a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Psychology from Michigan State University.
