SELG&C and Super Lawyers are pleased to announce the selection of recently promoted attorneys Stephen Bacigalupo and Nicholas Bliablias to the 2017 Super Lawyers New Jersey Rising Stars list. This marks Mr. Bacigalupo’s fourth consecutive year on this prestigious list and Mr. Bliablias’ fifth.  Each year the list appears in New Jersey Super Lawyers magazine.

Super Lawyers names New Jersey’s Rising Stars recipients through a multiphase selection process. First, the candidate pool is created through a peer nomination process. Next, the Super Lawyers research team thoroughly evaluates each candidate on 12 individual indicators, including verdicts and settlements, experience, honors and awards, and more. Next, attorneys are categorized by practice area, and peer evaluations take place. In the final selection process, candidates with the highest point totals are chosen.

To be selected, an attorney must be 40 years or younger or must have been in practice less then 10 years. No more than 2.5 percent of New Jersey attorneys are recognized in this category. This marks Steve and Nick as two of the most highly rated young attorneys in the State.

Mr. Bacigalupo graduated from Adelphi University and Seton Hall University School of Law. He focuses his practice on education law and representing School Boards across the state. In January of 2017 he gained additional recognition when he was promoted to Partner.

Mr. Bliablias graduated from Lehigh University and Rutgers University School of Law. He joined the firm in 2008 as an associate.  He too, was recently promoted to Partner through years of dedication and hard work.  Nick focuses his practice on Employment and Human Resource Counseling and Employment Litigation on behalf of management.

Please join us at Schwartz Simon Edelstein & Celso LLC in congratulating Stephen Bacigalupo and Nicholas Bliablias on continuing their tradition of excellence by being recognized as Rising Stars. To see what SELG&C can do for you, please contact us.
