It’s been a busy month for us here at Super Lawyers and we wanted to recap the editorial subjects for the three magazines released: 2016 New York Metro – Top Women special section in The New York Times Newspaper, 2016 Colorado Super Lawyers Magazine and the 2016 Texas Super Lawyers Magazine – Rising Stars.
Be sure to check out our cover story on business litigator Robbie Kaplan and her storied history being an advocate for same-sex marriage. Kaplan is thrilled that her son will grow up in a world where same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states. “The amount of ‘pinch me’ is hard to put into words. The opinion is everything we could have wanted and more-it’s not narrow, it’s not limited. It’s truly amazing.”
Kaplan also has extensive experience representing a diverse group of clients such as JP Morgan Chase, Fitch Ratings, Columbia University, the Minnesota Vikings and Airbnb in complex, high-profile matters. She has been active, for example, in matters involving stock analyst’s recommendations, market timing in mutual funds, reinsurance transactions and structured finance transactions.
In this edition of Colorado Super Lawyers Magazine, there are several noteworthy topics involving our editorial subjects. From law school at the University of Wyoming to facing discrimination of his own to garnering a multi-million dollar settlement, Qusair Mohamedbhai has seen quite a bit. Next we featured intellectual property attorney Christopher Seidman who works to protect artists’ rights in a digital age. And lastly we sat down with Craig Umbaugh who talked to us about his pivotal role in building stadiums in Denver and around the country.
Also don’t miss our “Word for Word” section where we had some fun by posing the question “What’s your favorite legal movie?” See one of the responses below.
“It shows many human failings-greed, corruption, addiction, deception-yet depicts how justice is still somehow attainable against insurmountable odds. It also shows the rewards for making the correct moral decision and standing up for what is right. I think it is a good lesson to the public regarding how lawyers can stand to protect those who can’t protect themselves. Paul Newman is also one of the best actors of all time.”

In this issue we are honored to tell the stories of amazing attorneys who are making a difference. That includes business litigator Adam Milasincic, with Houston’s Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing, who tells us about the many hats he has worn: reporter, campaign manager and even disc jockey. One title will remain for life: highest scorer of 2,464 test-takers on the 2011 Texas Bar exam. Then at KoonsFuller in Southlake, family law attorney Jessica Janicek has handled headline-grabbing cases such as the 2013 struggle by Marlise Muñoz’s family to have a brain-dead, pregnant woman removed from life support. And Richard Cheng, co-head of the health care group at Shannon, Gracey, Ratliff & Miller in Dallas, tells how a willingness to take risks led him to a successful career in his complex practice area.
