KNR Attorneys Named 2019 Super Lawyers and Rising Stars

Feb 22, 2019 Press Release

Kisling, Nestico & Redick is proud to announce that eight lawyers have been named as Super Lawyers or Rising Stars in 2019 by Super Lawyers Magazine.

At KNR, our top priority is our clients, not accolades. We work tirelessly to ensure everyone who walks through our doors receives thorough and compassionate representation. Nevertheless, it is an honor to be recognized for the work we do and the results we achieve for our clients.

Four KNR Attorneys Named Super Lawyers

Only up to 5 percent of lawyers in each state are selected as Super Lawyers. It is a competitive and prestigious list. Super Lawyers has developed a multi-phase process for determining the top attorneys in each state. Every nominated candidate is evaluated on 12 factors related to peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Lawyers conducts independent research into each candidate to review these 12 factors before it moves on to peer evaluations. Following peer evaluations, a panel of Super Lawyers’ members evaluates candidates within their primary practice areas. Finally, Super Lawyers selects attorneys from small, medium, and large law firms who are at the top of their fields.

This year, four KNR attorneys were named Super Lawyers:

  • Rob A. Nestico, 2019 Super Lawyer: Rob is a managing partner of Kisling, Nestico & Redick, and one of the founding partners. He began his legal career in insurance defense before switching to represent plaintiffs in personal injury matters.

KNR Home to Four Rising Stars

The selection process for Rising Stars is the same as for Super Lawyers. However, Rising Stars are for candidates who are either younger than 40 years or who have been practicing for fewer than 10 years. All attorneys begin in the Super Lawyers selection process, and if they qualify, may proceed through the Rising Stars selection process. Up to 5 percent of attorneys may be named Super Lawyers, but only up to 2.5 percent of attorneys can be named Rising Stars. This is a top accolade for lawyers during the beginning of their careers.

KNR is proud to have four Rising Stars this year:

  • Joshua R. Angelotta, 2019 Rising Star: Like several KNR attorneys, Joshua began his career defending insurance companies and large corporations.
