Press Release

Human Resource Executive magazine has named eight Employment Law Alliance (ELA) attorneys to its 2013 list of “The Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys.” Compiled for the publication by Lawdragon – a Los Angeles-based networking site for lawyers and clients – selectees were simultaneously cross-listed in that site’s 2013 edition of “The Guide to World-Class Employment Lawyers.”

“As an organization, we pride ourselves on selecting for membership only those attorneys and firms that we feel are best-in-class,” said Stephen J. Hirschfeld, Founder and CEO of the Employment Law Alliance. “These annual listings are a testament to the talent that drives the ELA and an affirmation of our process.”

Attorneys nominated for inclusion in “The Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys” and “The Guide to World-Class Employment Lawyers” were carefully vetted by their peers, Lawdragon researchers and an editorial board assembled to scrutinize each individual. Only 200 attorneys out of thousands of submissions were selected.
