No more than 2.5% of attorneys from each state are given this honor each year – and 100% of the lawyers at this small but dedicated firm were chosen.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
Shulman DuBois LLC is celebrating this week because both partners of the personal injury law firm, Joshua Shulman and Sean DuBois, have been named to the Rising Stars list in the 2012 SuperLawyers magazine for the state of Oregon for the 4th year in a row!
According to the SuperLawyers website, no more than 2.5% of attorneys from each state are given this honor each year – and 100% of the lawyers at this small but dedicated firm were chosen. Both Shulman and DuBois were listed under the category Personal Injury: Plaintiffs for their work as advocates for Oregon injury accident victims. The attorneys recognized must have been practicing law for under 10 years, or be age 40 and younger.
Shulman DuBois LLC is a boutique law firm based in Southeast Portland, Oregon. Founded in 2008, the firm is run by two personal injury attorneys devoted to ensuring their clients get justice through civil litigation. Both Shulman and DuBois practiced solo for several years before meeting at a volunteer event for the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association, and deciding to join forces.
Now, just a few years later, they have already made a name for themselves as staunch advocates against large insurance companies who try to take advantage of injury victims.
Recently, the two attorneys have attracted local media attention for their stand against hit and run driving in Oregon. At a recent rally, Joshua Shulman spoke about the need to change hit and run laws to ensure hit and run drivers have no incentive to leave the scene.
And Sean DuBois was featured in an Oregonian story (see the online version here) when one of Shulman DuBois LLC’s clients received $500,000 in compensation for serious injuries after a late-night hit and run by a prominent Oregon business owner (Circuit Court, Multnomah County case no.1007-47292). Shulman DuBois believes in helping clients and the community by calling attention to these issues to prevent injuries – as should all conscientious personal injury lawyers.
Joshua has been published in Trial Lawyer magazine, has served on the Publications Committee for OTLA, and is a writer for The Huffington Post Blog covering legal and national topics. He has given speeches on topics related to personal injury law, and is a member of Public Justice, Southern Poverty Law Center Leadership Council, the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association Guardians of Justice, American Association for Justice, the Oregon State Bar, Oregon Public Broadcasting, and is a proud graduate of Bill Barton’s Litigation Boot Camp.
Sean is a dedicated and active member of OTLA, where he is a Guardian of Justice member, regularly serving on committees and actively participating in fundraising and political efforts to support civil justice. He has been published in Trial Lawyer magazine and actively supports other pro-civil justice movements such as the American Association for Justice and Trial Lawyers for Public Justice.
SuperLawyers magazine chooses these attorneys through a very rigorous selection process that recognizes those lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Every year, SuperLawyers conducts a state-wide survey of lawyers by practice area and selects the best candidates after an independent evaluation.
