Four lawyers from Reed Smith’s Los Angeles office have been included in Super Lawyers’ 2020 Rising Stars list for Southern California, the firm announced today.

All four are women from our Labor & Employment Group recognized for their work on wage-and-hour, overtime, minimum wage, meal and rest period issues, as well as for representing clients in leave-of-absence, wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, retaliation lawsuits, and in cases alleging denial of family and medical leave.

  • Mara Curtis, Employment & Labor
  • Brittany Hernandez, Employment & Labor

The organization gives the annual Rising Star designation to lawyers under 40 years of age or who have fewer than 10 years in practice and demonstrate outstanding career accomplishments.

Super Lawyers annually selects lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement through a rigorous process that includes independent research, peer nominations, and peer evaluations.
