Attorney Scott Talkov Recognized as Super Lawyers Rising Star
June 13, 2013
Attorney Scott Talkov of Reid & Hellyer was named to the 2013 list of Rising Stars by Southern California Super Lawyers Magazine. A fourth year Associate Attorney with the firm, this marks Scott's first year being named to this list.
The Rising Stars selection process begins with surveys in which lawyers are asked "to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. They are instructed to nominate lawyers they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation."
Attorneys from Super Lawyers also independently review the credentials of potential candidates by assigning points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. Lawyers with the highest point totals from the surveys and independent review are named to the Rising Stars list.
Super Lawyers reports that no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to the Rising Stars list.
Senior Attorney Dave Moore, who has been named in Super Lawyers every year since 2009, commented on Scott's success. "This award reflects Scott's accomplishments and potential as an attorney. He's been a valuable member of our litigation team."
Scott joined Reid & Hellyer in August 2009 after graduating cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law, where he sat on the Board of Editors of the Washington University Law Review. Beginning his studies at University of California, Riverside, Scott completed his bachelor's degree as a 2004 graduate of University of California, Santa Barbara.
In 2010, he was elected as President of the Riverside County Barristers (Young Attorneys') Association. Scott has been published in the Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Journal of the American Bar Association. The emphasis of his practice is in real estate, business and bankruptcy litigation.
Headquartered in Riverside, Calif., Reid & Hellyer has been serving the Inland Empire for more than 100 years as one of the most-respected full-service law firms in Southern California, providing legal services in business and real estate litigation, real estate development, transactional law, media law, bankruptcy and mediation.
