Sacramento Magazine's Top Lawyers List


Posted on July 29, 2016

Photography by Jason Sinn

Quality counts, especially when it comes to lawyers. So it makes sense that if you need one, you’ll want to choose one who’s at the top of the heap. That’s why Sacramento Magazine contracted with Professional Research Services to find out just who these stellar lawyers are. 

The voting for Professional Research Services’ survey to determine the top attorneys in 2016 for Sacramento Magazine was open to all licensed attorneys in Sacramento, Calif. Attorneys were asked whom they would recommend among 56 legal specialties, other than themselves, in the Sacramento area. Each attorney was allowed to recommend up to three colleagues in each given legal specialty. Once the online nominations were complete, each nominee was carefully evaluated on the basis of the survey results, the legitimacy of their license, and their current standing with the State Bar of California. Attorneys who received the highest number of votes in each specialty are reflected in the following list. 

We also present question-and-answer sessions with some of the lawyers on the list.

Mark F. Johannessen, Family Law

What are some common misconceptions about family law matters like divorce and child custody?

Most people experience family law through television programs or the experiences of friends or family members. The court system is not dramatic, and the judges want to be fair to the parties and create a venue for people to address their concerns in a calm, orderly manner. The policy of the courts is for the parties to try to resolve their differences amicably, not though litigation. The emotionally charged “I will take her (or him) to the cleaners” or “you will never get custody” is tempered by the fact that the law is clear: Community property is to be divided equally. Also, the policy of the courts is to allow a child to have two involved parents, regardless of what the parties think of each other.

What makes family law challenging?

Family law is one of the most interesting and complicated areas of law to practice because it touches on so many other areas of law, with the added element of the emotional content the parties bring with them. It’s a dynamic area of law that continues to touch on current social issues such as LGBT rights and rights of those involved in the child’s birth and upbringing.

What type of background helps you excel at this practice?

I have a CPA background, so that certainly helps in dealing with cases with significant financial issues. Also, I am a trained mediator, and that as well is extremely useful in helping to defuse or overcome emotional roadblocks, which allows one or both of the parties to focus on the issues at hand and allows them to move through the process with the least damage to themselves and any children involved. As with any other area of law practice, you develop skill and knowledge over time, augmenting with training as needed, which for me included becoming a Certified Family Law Specialist. Experience does matter in this field.

The professionals listed herein were selected by their peers in a survey conducted by Professional Research Services Company of Troy, Mich. Professionals may be screened and selected through the verification of licensing and review of any infractions through various applicable boards, agencies and rating services.

Maryam Kia, Immigration

What are some common misconceptions about immigration law matters? 

Some people think that immigrants or undocumented individuals are an economic burden, or that they just come to use our welfare system, or that deporting aliens is a real solution. Immigration law is so much more than that. Immigration allows people to come into the country to work or start their foreign business, contributing to job creation and innovation. It allows international celebrities, researchers, scientists, artists and people with extraordinary abilities to come to this country and share their knowledge, thereby helping our country prosper. 

Why do you have a passion for it? 

My passion for immigration law stems from my own personal experience as an immigrant. I immigrated to the United States when I was very young, and I vividly remember my parents’ struggles adjusting to a new country, language and a whole new set of rules. I remember our green card interview, and the excitement my parents felt at that moment. I was too young to understand what all the exhilaration was for, but now I understand. I empathize with the clients that come and share their stories with me because I know what it all means, the challenges they will face and the opportunities that await them.

What qualities help you to be successful in this area?

Empathy is the most important quality a successful immigration practitioner can have. Without empathy, clients lose trust and hope. Being empathetic has given me the drive to take true ownership of my clients’ cases and this, in turn, has made me a persistent attorney, which sometimes is exactly what is needed when the law is limited.

Noël M. Ferris, Personal Injury

What’s an average case like in the field of personal injury law?

I think the thing I value most about my job is recognizing that there is no “cookie-cutter” case and that each client deserves individual attention and understanding. My clients want me to understand how their injuries affect their everyday lives. In order to do so, I think it is really important to listen and take the time to understand the impact of their injuries. I have a sign above my computer that says: “Every person that you meet knows something you don’t. Learn from them.”

We often hear of very-high-dollar legal settlements in the news that seem pretty outrageous. Is that the norm?

I have never seen a jury reach a verdict that was outrageous. Likewise, settlements we achieve for our clients are equal to the loss they have suffered. If a case settles for millions, that means there was negligent conduct and a lifelong injury or death of a loved one. It sometimes seems like a disconnect to calculate a loss with money damages. How do you calculate the loss of a child? How do you calculate the loss of a limb or paralysis or a brain injury? But that is how our system works. And, not surprisingly, juries collectively come up with an amount that in my experience is fair.

If you weren’t working in this particular field, what other fields would you like to spend your time in?

If I was not working as a lawyer, I would spend more of my time working to combat human trafficking, which is a huge problem right here in Sacramento. I also would love to teach quilting, a hobby of mine.

Wendy A. Green, Legal Malpractice

What do you want the public to know about working in legal malpractice? 

Many people have the wrong impression about lawyers. Despite the lawyer jokes that suggest lawyers are greedy sharks who only care about themselves, most lawyers are smart and capable. They work hard and really want to get the best result for their clients. They have interests outside the law and they love their families, just like everyone else.

Is it hard to be collegial with attorneys against whom you’ve brought suit?

I defend lawyers who have been sued—I don’t bring suit against them—but I find that an attorney’s professionalism is more about his or her personality and experience and not about whether or not we are or have been adversaries. Some attorneys are always professional and easy to work with, even in contentious litigation, while other attorneys are a little more challenging. Just like everyone else.

What constitutes malpractice?

A “mistake” is not necessarily malpractice. Many lawyers make mistakes that do not rise to the level of legal malpractice. In my experience, when a lawyer actually commits malpractice, he or she typically feels badly about it and wants to make it right.

Why do you have a passion for it?

One of the best things about being a legal malpractice attorney is the variety of cases we see. Our clients practice in all areas of the law: business, personal injury, family law, estate planning, etc. When we are evaluating what they did while representing their client, we learn about their practice areas. The variety keeps things interesting.

Mark E. Merin, Class Action

When people think of class action suits, they think of groups of people banding together to sue large corporations for big dollars. But that’s not what you do, correct?

Indeed. My focus is on civil rights suits and it has been for 47 years. I focus on homeless-rights issues, Native American law, prisoner abuse, mistreatment of juveniles, police misconduct and excessive force among many others.

Do you seek out these cases or do people come to you?

Clients come to me. It’s almost exclusively word of mouth. I’ve been doing this for over four decades and have represented thousands of clients. Plus, there aren’t many people in the area who do what I do.

You’re currently 72 years old. Any plans to retire?

Not at all. This has been a lifelong pursuit. I only wish I had more time to work with all the cases that come my way. I have two grandchildren who compete for my time, and they’re wonderful. Again, if anything, I don’t want to slow down; I only wish I had more time.

There’s been much talk of homeless issues in the recent mayoral election. You’ve been working on homeless rights for years, correct?

For sure. We—a coalition including individuals like me and organizations such as Loaves & Fishes—have brought the city a variety of proposals that have already been adopted in cities like Seattle, Portland, Albuquerque, Denver and even other California cities. The goal is to have temporary solutions, whether it be temporary encampments or tiny-house villages, that allow the homeless to deal with their issues, whether they be mental issues or substance-abuse issues or employment issues, and transition them to permanent housing.

William J. Portanova, Criminal Defense

How do you explain to others what you do?

In a perfect world, there would be no need for lawyers, but in our imperfect world the prosecutors serve as filters between the police and the courts, and the defense attorneys serve as filters between the courts and the accused. 

What does the criminal justice system look like from the point of view of someone who works in it every day?

The power of the government to imprison an individual is almost absolute, and the criminal defense attorney is the one person legally empowered to critically analyze the thoroughness of a government investigation and the strength of the government’s evidence against the client. 

Law enforcement agents and prosecutors are sworn to seek the truth and accomplish justice, and I have a high degree of confidence in their performance, especially here in Sacramento, but I also can’t 

forget the old saying, “To a hammer, sometimes everything looks like a nail.” Often, we succeed on our client’s behalf simply by presenting additional evidence that the agent or prosecutor was not aware of. 

It seems like a career in criminal defense could be a bit depressing. How do you keep your spirits up?

I love every day of this job, almost without exception. No two days are the same. In fact, no two hours are the same. I’ve been in and out of state and federal courtrooms almost daily for 35 years, and it is better today than when I started. Resolving problems for people who need help with their problems with the government is what I enjoy. It’s really that simple. 

If you could be doing anything else but the law, what would you spend your time doing?

I enjoy spending time in desolate mountainous places, the higher and the farther north, the better. This year, we’ll be returning to Iceland for a while and then over to Greenland. From there, north.
