New York, NY (PRWEB) October 12, 2013
Morgan & Morgan is proud to announce attorney Domenico “Nico” Minerva, who was recently elected as the Chair of the New York County Democratic Committee, has been selected as a 2013 New York Metro Area Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine.
“Seems that when it rains, it pours. With respect to the Super Lawyers designation, I’m humbled and honored,” Minerva said of his recent back-to-back career achievements. “Humbled because my peers thought highly enough about my work to nominate me, and honored that the Super Lawyers evaluating committee included my name among so many prominent attorneys.”
Though the approval of his peers within the legal and political communities is always welcome and treasured, Minerva acknowledges there aren’t many things better than the approval of family and loved ones.
“Knowing that my parents and my wife are proud of me is truly the greatest gift,” Minerva said.
A graduate of Tulane University School of Law, Minerva’s practice is headquartered at Morgan & Morgan’s New York office, which handles securities and consumer class action litigation. Minerva, a former financial advisor for Morgan Stanley, works with clients to help them identify and take appropriate legal action against fraud. In September 2013, Minerva was elected Chair of the New York County (Manhattan) Democratic Committee, the largest and, arguably, most significant democratic county committee in the state of New York.
Both of Minerva’s recent accomplishments are certainly resume-worthy. To Minerva, though, the benefits of his selection as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers will truly be seen in his relationships with clients, as well as his interactions with opponents in court.
“Clients know that they are dealing with someone whose work is independently evaluated and recognized thereby providing an added sense of comfort and affirmation of their assessment about the attorney,” Minerva said. “With respect to my adversaries, I believe they approach another lawyer differently when they know their opponent was listed among them in professional achievements.”
Super Lawyers is an organization that rates lawyers who have attained “a high-degree of peer recognition and achievement” through an in-depth evaluation process that includes, among other facets, independent research and peer nominations and evaluations. The group’s publication, Super Lawyers Magazine, features complete profiles of all attorneys selected and is distributed within the lawyers’ specified state or region, as well as American Bar Association-accredited law school libraries. Supers Lawyers’ “Rising Stars” program acknowledges the top up-and-coming attorneys in 36 states who are 40 years old or younger or who have been practicing for fewer than 10 years.
