The law firm of Stechschulte Bulnes is proud to announce that both of their shareholders, Ben Stechschulte and Alyson George Bulnes, were named 2015 Rising Stars by Super Lawyers. This organization selects the best and brightest from across the country for this prestigious distinction.

The Super Lawyers Rising Star recognition is an honor bestowed annually on approximately 2.5% of attorneys in the state who have passed a rigorous and patented review process. To qualify, a lawyer must be no more than 40 years old and have been in practice for 10 years or less. They must be nominated by an attorney for consideration. Extensive research is then conducted, followed by peer review and ultimate determination.

Founded by Ben in 2012, the law firm initially focused primarily on criminal defense work. Last year his friend and law school colleague, Alyson, joined the firm adding her extensive background in personal injury and civil litigation to the practice. Both lawyers have vast experience in litigation, with numerous criminal and civil trials to their credit, and their respective backgrounds resulted in their Rising Star designations.
