SAN FRANCISCO – Simmons Hanly Conroy, one of the nation’s largest mass torts firms and a national leader in the legal representation of mesothelioma patients and their families, is pleased to announce that Firm Shareholder Deborah Rosenthal has been named to the 2023 edition of Northern California Super Lawyers. In addition, Firm Shareholder Jennifer Alesio has been named to the 2023 Northern California Rising Stars list.

Based in the firm’s San Francisco, California, office, Rosenthal has more than 25 years of experience as a litigator. A member of the firm’s Asbestos & Mesothelioma, Sexual Abuse Litigation and Personal Injury practice groups, Rosenthal has helped secure millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for clients against defective product manufacturers, oil and shipping companies, telecom carriers, and other institutional and individual wrongdoers.

Also based in San Francisco, Jennifer Alesio is a trial attorney who focuses her practice on mesothelioma and asbestos-related cases, helping injured workers and their families secure the justice they deserve. As a first chair, Alesio has secured more than $100 million in mesothelioma verdicts on behalf of individuals and families harmed by asbestos. In her 15 years of experience as a litigator, she has served as trial counsel on well over a hundred cases that have cumulatively resolved for millions of dollars prior to verdict.

Only the top 5% of lawyers in Northern California are named to the Super Lawyers list, and no more than 2.5% of qualified attorneys in the region are included in the Rising Stars list. Rising Stars honorees must be 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 or fewer years. Super Lawyers uses independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations to determine the honorees.

Published by Thomson Reuters, the lists are featured in the Northern California Super Lawyers Magazine and in various regional magazines and newspaper supplements in the state, as well as distributed to attorneys and ABA-accredited law school libraries.
