Rising Stars is an annual publication of Law & Politics and Super Lawyers that was first published in Minnesota in 1998 to recognize the state’s top up-and-coming attorneys. To determine who is chosen as a Rising Star, the editors of Law & Politics solicit nominations from the publication’s most recent group of Super Lawyers – attorneys licensed to practice five years or more, who are recognized as the top in their field – and then conducts extensive independent research on all of the nominees and their professional credentials.

The complete biographies of the Schnader attorneys selected as Pennsylvania Rising Stars for 2006 are available on the “Attorneys” section of our Web site.
