IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 24, 2014 – Four attorneys from leading California labor, employment and business immigration law firm Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP (CDF) were recently named to the 2014 Southern California Super Lawyers® list. Marie DiSante, firm managing partner in Orange County, Dave Carothers, managing partner of the San Diego office, Brent Giddens, managing partner of the Los Angeles office and Steven Micheli, senior counsel in CDF’s San Diego office received the impressive accolade. Each year, only five percent of California attorneys are selected by the team at Super Lawyers and by industry peers for the prestigious recognition.
“It’s always an honor to be recognized for hard work and dedication, especially when the recognition comes from such an esteemed organization as well as our industry colleagues,” said CDF firm managing partner Marie DiSante. “As CDF celebrates its 20th anniversary, we will continue to deliver the high-caliber service our clients and peers have come to expect of us.”
Since 1994, CDF has built a reputation for excellence and maintained an unparalleled commitment to clients’ success. The firm’s longstanding dedication to client satisfaction is fueled by the experience and passion each individual attorney brings to the practice. In 2014, the four attorneys given the Super Lawyers designation underpin CDF’s status at the forefront of employment law.
For 25 years, Orange County-based firm managing partner Marie DiSante has channeled her passion and expertise for law into providing strategic counsel to employers across California. DiSante plays an integral role defending California employers in class action litigation and has contributed to CDF’s growth and reputation as a leading California employment law firm.
For a third year in a row, San Diego managing partner Dave Carothers was selected to the Super Lawyers list. With nearly three decades of legal experience, Carothers specializes in wage and hour issues, and has defended employers in more than 50 trials over the course of his distinguished career.
This year marks Los Angeles managing partner Brent Giddens’ second Super Lawyers recognition. Giddens’ extensive background and experience in defending class actions, as well as individual actions before California state and federal courts, has helped CDF clients advance business goals.
For the first time, San Diego-based senior counsel Steven Micheli was selected to the Super Lawyers list. His more than 30 years of successful litigation experience has contributed to the recognition.
