Christina Sonsire.

Christina Sonsire has been named a Rising Star again for her trial work.

Christina Sonsire of the Ziff Law Firm has been recognized by a national rating service as a Super Lawyers “Rising Star” for the third year in a row for her work as a trial lawyer.

Super Lawyers, which evaluates top lawyers from more than 70 practice areas, honored Christina because she is an outstanding attorney 40 years old and younger who has been practicing law for fewer than 10 years, according to the rating service. Fewer than 2.5 percent of attorneys receive this recognition.

Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a multistep selection process that includes peer nominations, evaluations and independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual basis.

We are so proud that Christina was again selected as a Rising Star because she is the first local lawyer ever selected for this great honor. Her selection confirms what we already knew: Christina continues to be considered one the finest young attorneys in New York state if not the entire country.

“I am really proud to be named a Rising Star,” said Christina, who primarily handles medical malpractice and catastrophic injury cases. “I love the kind of work that I do, and am so proud to be able to do it in my hometown with such a great law firm.”

Christina is a 1994 graduate of Elmira Notre Dame High School. She has a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University and a law degree from the University of Montana. Sonsire is on the board of directors of New York state’s Academy of Trial lawyers and frequently lectures across the state on topics related to injury and malpractice law.
