Conor Kennedy Recognized as a Northern California Super Lawyer and Rising Star
Garcia Hernández Sawhney, LLP is pleased to share the news that Conor Kennedy has been recognized as a Northern California Super Lawyers Rising Star in the area of Schools & Education Law. According to Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, annual Rising Stars selections factor in a survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. No more than 2.5 percent of the region’s attorneys are selected.
While Conor is based in our San Francisco Bay Area office, where he focuses on special education and employment law, he serves GHS’s school district clients up and down the entire state of California – from the Oxnard Plain to the Napa Valley. Conor advises on the full gamut of compliance and litigation issues encountered by school district leadership teams, department heads, and governing boards. Since joining the GHS team, Conor has focused much of his practice on Brown Act compliance, both for school districts and for special districts. An experienced litigator, Conor routinely advocates for GHS school district clients in federal court, both up here in the Northern District of California in San Francisco, as well as the Central District of California in Los Angeles.
