Casandra Perez, a Miami attorney with the law firm of Damian & Valori LLP, was recognized as a 2010 Rising Star in the area of Bankruptcy & Creditor/Debtor Rights by Florida Super Lawyers Magazine.
A Super Lawyer is selected by asking attorneys to nominate the best lawyers they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other first-hand observation in the courtroom. The intent is to discourage lawyers from voting for others based purely on reputation. Each lawyer is then given a score based on the number of votes he or she receives and the source of those votes. Votes received from lawyers in other firms count for significantly more points than votes received from lawyers in the same firm. This edition included Super Lawyers from the Miami/Fort Lauderdale/Palm Beach area.
