Terri Adler Named to Top 50 Women Attorney List Along with Thirteen Duval & Stachenfeld LLP Partners Being Selected As New York Super Lawyers


Duval & Stachenfeld LLP is pleased to announce that Terri Adler, Chair of the Real Estate Practice Group, has been selected to the 2012 New York Super Lawyers list of the “Top 50 Women” attorneys in New York. Ms. Adler was a founding member of Duval & Stachenfeld when the Firm was formed in October 1997, so this accomplishment coincides with the Firm's 15 year anniversary.

In addition to Ms. Adler's recognition, thirteen Duval & Stachenfeld partners have been selected for inclusion on the New York Super Lawyers list for 2012. The 2012 New York Super Lawyers list appears in the New York Super Lawyers – Metro Edition magazine and was also in a special advertising supplement to The New York Times Magazine on October 3, 2012.

Duval & Stachenfeld is also pleased to announce that Joseph Galvano and Chris Gorman from the Real Estate Practice Group and Keith Blackman from the Litigation Group were included in the New York Super Lawyers list of “Rising Stars,” which consists of no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state who are 40 or under and have been practicing for 10 years or less.

Only five percent of New York Metro attorneys were named to the 2012 New York Super Lawyers list. The thirteen Duval & Stachenfeld LLP attorneys, like all of the attorneys on the list, were selected through an extensive process based on peer nominations, blue ribbon panel review and independent research.
