Cellino & Barnes Attorney, Christian Oliver, Named as “Rising Star” in New York Metro SuperLawyers

Cellino & Barnes is proud to announce that personal injury attorney Christian R. Oliver has been selected for inclusion into the 2011 Metro edition of New York Super Lawyers as “Rising Star”.

Following law school graduation, Christian declined an offer from one of the nation’s top corporate law firms and  instead decided to pursue his life-long dream  to work as a trial attorney on behalf of injured individuals.

Inspired by his own personal injury accident, Christian experienced the consequences of a life changing injury and understands first-hand how important it is to have an advocate willing to fight for you.

“We are honored that Christian has been named as a “Rising Star”,” stated Ross Cellino.  “We are proud of his exemplary work as a personal injury attorney and his level of dedication and commitment to his clients.”

How Does One Become a “Rising Star”

Per SuperLawyers: Lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. They are instructed to nominate lawyers they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.

More About SuperLawyers

Super Lawyers is comprised of outstanding lawyers recognized by their peers for professional achievements. Each lawyer must undergo a statewide nomination process, review of resumes and peer evaluation by practice area.  Only 5% of lawyers in Upstate New York are named to the list.

In addition to the general survey, the attorney-led research team reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. The research staff also confirms that nominees are properly licensed, in good standing with the state licensing agency, and, when possible, that they have no history of disciplinary action that would warrant removal from the list.
