SoCal Appellate Whippersnappers per the DJ

The latest supplement to the Daily Journal is the annual "Top 20 under Forty" designed to showcase up and comers who have not yet reached their fourth decade. Two of the fortunate 20 lawyers profiled list "appellate" as (or among) their specialities. So, congrats to:
  • Glenn Danas (see Brown v. Ralphs Grocery Co. (2011) 197 Cal.App.4th 197 and Iskanian v. CLS Transp. (2012)) and
  • GDC's Theane Kapur (see Wilson v. HP (9th Cir. 2012) 668 F.3d 1136).
Honorable mention to Theona Zhordania, who listed anti-SLAPP litigation as a specialty, and thereby is automatically an appellate lawyer too (see CCP 425.16(i)).
