ACTS Law is pleased to announce that several of its lawyers have been selected for the 2021 California Rising Stars list. The lawyers have been named for their contributions to various practice areas. Those selected are David S. Bederman, Joseph R. Finnerty, and Michael Harutunian.
Rising Stars, which is affiliated with Super Lawyers, selects lawyers from across the United States in 70 different practice areas. The selection is the result of a long and involved multi-phase process that begins with nominations by other lawyers in the field.

The goal of Rising Stars is to provide the public and other lawyers with a comprehensive and credible list they can use as a resource. The process is identical to that of the selection process for Super Lawyers. The only difference is Rising Stars candidates must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.
