Rising Stars Among Us

The independent legal rating service Super Lawyers has named Ashcraft & Gerel associates Stephen Gensemer and Sam Lynn as “Rising Stars” in Maryland and Washington, D.C.

While both stellar litigators, Mr. Gensemer and Mr. Lynn came to Ashcraft & Gerel from very different trajectories. Mr. Lynn studied biology in college and, while still an undergraduate, identified a previously undiscovered virus during a stint with the USDA. Mr. Gensemer honed his aggressive courtroom style as a criminal defense lawyer before expanding his practice to include workers’ compensation and personal injury cases at Ashcraft & Gerel.

The “Rising Stars” are attorneys aged 40 or under who have been practicing for 10 years or less. They are nominated by peers who have personally observed them in action, whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel. The Super Lawyers staff then reviews and rates the candidates on other evaluation criteria, arriving at a final list through a rigorous peer-reviewed process.
