Alexander Egner Named a Super Lawyers Rising Star

Clients seeking legal representation for the first time can struggle to know where to begin. That’s why Thomson Reuters created Super Lawyers, a directory of some of the best attorneys in the nation. Chieppor & Egner, LLC is proud to announce that our own Alexander Egner, a founding partner, has been added to the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list for 2024.

What It Means to Be a Rising Star

When a client sets out to find an attorney, they typically look for someone who has demonstrated success in their career and who has earned a stellar reputation in the field. That’s why the rigorous four-part Super Lawyers selection process focuses on two general areas: professional achievement and peer recognition.

The process assesses achievement and recognition using 12 key indicators:

  • Professional association and bar activity
  • Position within the law firm
  • Verdicts and settlements won
  • Transactions
  • Representative clients
  • Awards and honors
  • Educational background and employment history
  • Community service and pro bono activity
  • Certifications and special licenses
  • Experience
  • Publications and lectures
  • Other achievements

Lawyers who reach a certain threshold are then evaluated by other high-scoring attorneys in their practice areas. The winners are part of a small, elite group: only 5% make the Super Lawyers list, and only 2.5% are chosen as Rising Stars.

In the legal profession, many awards are geared toward experienced attorneys who have been practicing for decades. The Rising Stars list recognizes newer lawyers who are on their way to building illustrious careers.

To qualify as a Rising Star, an attorney must be under 40 or have been in practice for under 10 years. In many cases, attorneys chosen as Rising Stars — and particularly those who make the list multiple years in a row — go on to earn coveted spots on the Super Lawyers list.

Chieppor & Egner, LLC’s Rising Star

This year is Alexander Egner’s second time on the Rising Stars list. Before he co-founded Chieppor & Egner, LLC, Mr. Egner worked as an Assistant District Attorney. His background as a prosecutor has uniquely equipped him to defend clients against criminal charges. We are proud to announce Mr. Egner’s inclusion on the Rising Stars list, and we look forward to seeing where his career takes him — and our firm — next.

Protecting Futures, One Client at a Time

When it comes to criminal defense, success isn’t just about winning cases; it’s also about ensuring that every client’s rights are protected. Mr. Egner and the other attorneys at Chieppor & Egner, LLC are determined to fight for our clients’ rights, even when the odds seem stacked against them.

Making the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list is a sign of Mr. Egner’s grit, determination, and dedication to his clients. We’d like to congratulate him and offer our clients our most sincere thanks for choosing us.
