PRESTIGIOUS CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY SERVING MANHATTAN FOR 15 YEARS

Vinoo Varghese, the founding Manhattan criminal defense attorney at Varghese & Associates, was named to the list of Rising Stars by New York Law Journal in May 2014. This list includes 42 young attorneys who represent the future of the legal industry, expressing valuable facets of the profession including intelligence, dynamic thinking, and civic-mindedness. The Journal represents and honors these bar leaders as unique contributors to the legal industry in New York.

These individuals come from every field and discipline in the legal industry, including:

  • Corporate litigation
  • Criminal defense
  • Immigration
  • Family law

They are professionals who have left their mark on their career at young ages, and whose futures are promising, bright, and indicative of a positive future for the legal industry as a whole. Many have shown entrepreneurship by building their own businesses and turning them into success stories. Many have utilized community opportunities to give back to their neighbors. All attorneys have demonstrated that they know what it takes to excel in their field and to fight for justice.

HOW ARE THE RISING STARS CHOSEN?

Every year, this list is compiled from hundreds of nominees, winnowed down by excellent judges who provide nuance, perspective, and a well-rounded understanding of what it means to be a truly excellent and preeminent attorney. This year’s panel of 20 judges vetted and ranked all nominees on a scale of one to five, with five being the highest score. The 42 final attorneys on the 2014 Rising Stars list were chosen from a list of approximately 225 nominees. Honorees are those lawyers who had the most impressive ratings—at least four or above.

PROUD TO BE AMONG 2014 RISING STARS

The New York Law Journal states that attorneys included in the Rising Stars list have exhibited “first-rate legal skills, keen judgment, creativity, and dedication that made a lasting impression on colleagues and clients.” Attorney Vinoo Varghese was one of just two small-firm attorneys to be included in the impressive list. Mr. Varghese is honored by his inclusion in the Journal’s list, and thankful for the validation of his clients’ faith in him.
