FPS Shareholders selected for inclusion in 2018 Northern California SUPER Lawyers lists.


We appreciate the chance to share a spotlight with so many accomplished and dedicated attorneys in our region and practice area. A vote of confidence by our collective peer group sends a SUPER message that we are doing something right.


We’re SUPER pleased to recognize Neil Forester and Michelle Stowell for their selection to the 2018 Northern California Super Lawyers list. Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state are picked by the research team.

In addition, we’re SUPER-DUPER proud of Matt Purcell for being recognized again on the Rising Stars list, an honor reserved for only 2.5 percent of the top lawyers in the region who are under 40 years of age or in practice less than 10 years. In 2011, Matt was the youngest lawyer in the state to become a Certified Family Law Specialist, a SUPER SPECIAL designation from the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization and held by all three FPS shareholders.

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. To ensure a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys, annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes: a statewide survey of lawyers; an independent research evaluation of candidates; and, peer reviews by practice area.

The 2018 lists will be printed this August in Northern California Super Lawyers magazine and Sactown magazine.
