Nicole M. Pardus, an attorney with Long & Long LLC specializing in estate planning and administration, business formation and advisement, real estate and civil litigation, clinched a place on the 2021 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Rising Stars list.
Each year, just 2.5% of lawyers in Pennsylvania are designated to Rising Stars rankings which recognize the contributions of exceptional attorneys who are age 40 or under or practicing for less than 10 years.
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
"Nicole is widely-known as a skilled attorney and an energetic force in the local legal scene," said Long & Long Partner Adam J. Long. "We're proud of her contributions to her clients, our practice and the greater legal community which have earned her this well-deserved honor."
Playing an active role in the Westmoreland Bar Association, Pardus serves as vice chair of its Young Lawyers Division, which provides opportunities for young lawyers to expand their participation in bar activities and continuing legal education programs while fostering interaction with peers. She sits on the board of directors of Laurel Legal Services, a nonprofit organization providing free civil legal services to qualified low-income clients in six counties in western Pennsylvania.
A resident of Manor, Pardus is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country. Super Lawyers Magazines also feature editorial profiles of attorneys who embody excellence in the practice of law.
