Five Weld Riley, S.C. attorneys named to 2017 Wisconsin Super Lawyers lists

Five Weld Riley attorneys recognized as among the best lawyers in Wisconsin

In its November 2017 annual list of top lawyers, Super Lawyers Magazine rated Steve Weld, Tom Graham, Bill Wallo, Daneille Strong, and Bryan Symes as being among the best attorneys in the state in their respective practice areas. The annual list is determined through a process which involves peer nominations, independent research, and selection by a final review panel. Only 5% of attorneys are selected as “Super Lawyers,” while only 2.5% of attorneys under the age of 40, or with less than 10 years of practice, are selected as “Rising Stars.”

Firm founder and president Steve Weld has been selected to the Super Lawyers list every year since its inception in 2005, and has been listed among The Best Lawyers in America since 1995. His practice is focused primarily on management labor and employment law.

Tom Graham has been selected to the Super Lawyers list every year since 2008, and has been listed among The Best Lawyers in America since 2011. In 2007, Tom was inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America. His practice focuses on litigation, primarily personal injury, civil, and business litigation.

Bill Wallo has been selected to the Super Lawyers list for the past two years. Bill’s practice focuses on business transactions, commercial litigation, and business bankruptcy, insolvency, and restructuring matters.

Daneille Strong has been selected as a Super Lawyers “Rising Star” for the past two years, as a top-rated attorney in the area of creditor/debtor rights. Daneille’s practice focuses on worker’s compensation defense, creditors’ rights, and collection matters.

Bryan Symes was first selected as a  Super Lawyers “Rising Star” in 2011, and has been selected each year since 2013 as a top-rated attorney in the area of employment and labor. Bryan’s practice focuses on employment law and litigation, labor relations and alternative dispute resolution.
