Sara Fazio 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 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.
