Jocelyn Cortez Named to 2014 Nevada Rising Stars℠ List

We are excited to announce that Jocelyn Cortez, one of our experienced attorneys at De Castroverde Law Group, has been selected for the 2014 Nevada Super Lawyers® Rising Stars list. She is among just 2.5% of attorneys in the state of Nevada to be included in this prestigious list.

Rising Stars specifically honors up-and-coming attorneys who have earned a high level of professional success and recognition among their professional peers. Only lawyers who are age 40 or younger or who have 10 years or less of practice experience can be considered for the list, according to the Super Lawyers® website. Attorney Cortez handles immigration cases at our Las Vegas firm and has proven herself to be an effective legal advocate.

The Rising Stars list is published by Super Lawyers® Magazine, which also publishes the Super Lawyers® list. Rising Stars uses the same selection process as Super Lawyers®, except for the age and experience limitations. The selection process includes peer nomination, independent research and review by Super Lawyers® Magazine, and peer evaluations.

For Attorney Cortez, immigration law is a legal field that hits close to home. When she was five months old, her family left El Salvador and started a new life in the U.S.—specifically in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is fluent in Spanish and has been interviewed about immigration issues on Univision’s national radio show “Zona Politica” several times.  

Attorney Cortez has been recognized as a leading lawyer on multiple occasions. She has earned a 9.0 Superb rating from Avvo and was featured in the 2013 Women in Law edition of Attorneys at Law Magazine.
