Five Friedemann Goldberg attorneys were recently honored as Super Lawyers and Rising Stars by SuperLawyers Magazine for 2016. Partners John Friedemann, Steven Goldberg and Ronald Wargo were honored as Super Lawyers by the publication, an honor reserved for less than 5 percent of attorneys in a region.

Associate attorneys John MacLeod and Mia Shirley were named Rising Stars by the magazine, which signifies lawyers who are under 40 years of age and exhibit great skill and professionalism in their areas of practice. This award is given to less than 2.5 percent of attorneys in a region.


Friedemann Goldberg has been named a "2016 Gold Tier 1 Firm" for Trusts & Estates Law by US News & World Report and Best Lawyers. The award reflects the firm’s role as a preeminent firm for trust, probate and estate planning and administration in the Santa Rosa metro area.

The Tier 1 ranking comes shortly after founding partner Steven Goldberg was named the “Lawyer of the Year” for Trusts & Estates in the Santa Rosa Metro Area. The award, given by Best Lawyers Magazine, is part of the 2015 Best Lawyers in America publication, which is conducted in conjunction with US News & Review.

The award marks the second time that Mr. Goldberg has been recognized for the prestigious honor for the Santa Rosa metro area.

The nomination process for both awards, which relies exclusively on peer recommendation and review, is a reflection of the professional opinion of leading trust and estate lawyers in the North Bay.


Friedemann Goldberg LLP recently received its sixth-consecutive award as one of the North Bay Business Journal's “Best Places to Work".

The list, which represents companies and organizations in Marin, Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties, is compiled through anonymous employee surveys that poll the credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie of the company.

Managing Partner John Friedemann said he was proud to be a part of “a work environment that supports and rewards excellence, honesty, mutual support and fair dealing.”
