NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- An attorney from New Rochelle has joined the ranks of only 5 percent of lawyers in New York state to be named a "Super Lawyer."
She is Lydia S. Antoncic, the founder of Lydia S. Antoncic, P.C., a law firm concentrating in family and matrimonial law in Westchester County and the New York metropolitan area.
"I was incredibly humbled and honored to be selected for inclusion in the Super Lawyer list. Commitment to my clients and integrity to the profession are always my first priorities, so being recognized for this distinction is particularly gratifying, and a bar I strive for every day," Antoncic told Daily Voice.
The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country, a news release said.
The magazines also feature editorial profiles of attorneys who embody excellence in their practice of law.
An experienced litigator for 20 years in the area of family and matrimonial law, Antoncic also represents children in neglect, custody, and other family court proceedings.
“It’s all about the kids, and sometimes adults forget that while working through the divorce process. It’s my job to make sure that the kid’s needs are always the first priority," she said.
Super Lawyers, part of Thomson Reuters, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement, said a release.
The annual selection process includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area.
Along with being a Super Lawyer, Antoncic received an AV-Preeminent Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, peer rated for highest level of professional excellence and endorsed for ethical standing, said the release.
