Eleven lawyers from the Hart Wagner law firm were honored in the 2018 issue of Oregon Super Lawyers magazine. The publication identifies the most outstanding attorneys in the state, as chosen by their peers and through the research of Super Lawyers, which is a Thomson Reuters business.
Notably, Janet Schroer and Gordon Welborn were recognized for being among the Top 50 attorneys in Oregon, and Karen O’Kasey and Janet Schroer were included in the Top 25 women lawyers in Oregon.
In its Oregon 2018 Super Lawyers list, the following Hart Wagner partners were recognized in these designated practice areas:

Hart Wagner associates Michael Jacobs, Stephanie Kucera and Mark C. Sherman, were selected to the 2018 Rising Stars list.

While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to the Super Lawyers roster, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.
Each year, the research team at Super Lawyers undertakes a multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by the attorney-led research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check. The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country.
