Human Resource Executive magazine has named 12 Employment Law Alliance (ELA) attorneys to its 2016 list of “The Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys.” The list was compiled for the publication by Lawdragon – a Los Angeles-based networking site for lawyers and clients. Attorneys named to “The Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys – Top 100” were simultaneously cross-listed in Lawdragon’s 2016 edition of “The Guide to World-Class Employment Lawyers.”

“The quality of our members is a real point of pride for our organization. Industry-specific yardsticks, like the HR Executive list, add credence to our philosophy and credentialing process, while building confidence in the resources we provide to clients worldwide,” said Stephen J. Hirschfeld, Founder and CEO of the Employment Law Alliance. “Once again, I am honored to be in the company of so many outstanding colleagues from across the United States.”

Attorneys nominated for inclusion in “The Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys” were carefully vetted by their peers, Lawdragon researchers and an editorial board assembled to scrutinize each individual.
