Castle Law Kansas City Attorney Named 2012 Super Lawyers Rising Star
Posted on Nov 06, 2012
Our very own Kansas City personal injury attorney Andrew Schendel was recently named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers.
Super Lawyers is an attorney rating service that recognizes outstanding lawyers who have received peer recognition and professional success. Only 2.5 percent or fewer attorneys in the state of Missouri receive this recognition, so we're very proud of Andrew here at Castle Law of Kansas City.
To be included in the Rising Stars list, an attorney must be nominated by other lawyers who've observed the attorney in action. Then the Super Lawyers research team reviews the nominee’s credentials and awards points based on a number of criteria. The attorneys with the most points are designated Rising Stars.
Andrew has represented personal injury plaintiffs since 2008 and has already achieved great success. He represents individuals who've suffered serious and catastrophic injuries in car accidents, workers’ compensation, and slip and falls. Now his accomplishments have been formally recognized.
Here's a little more from Andrew after receiving the honor:
How do you feel about being named a Rising Star?
I’m thrilled, and thankful to the attorneys who nominated me for the honor.
What's your favorite thing about practicing law?
My favorite part of the job is handing clients a settlement check, especially when we’ve had to fight hard to get to that point.
What other work do you do in the community?
I work with the Legal Aid Volunteer Attorney Project in Kansas City. This project matches up indigent clients with attorneys who provide them with free representation.
What else do you enjoy outside of law?
Playing and listening to music, good movies, and spending time with my family and close friends.
If you've been injured due to someone else’s negligence, there's a Super Lawyers Rising Star on your side!
