Three McGeorge graduates were singled out for a major honor in the 2008 edition of Northern California Super Lawyers magazine.

Bob Buccola, ’83, Pat Galloway, ’70, and James Lopes, ’74, were named to a list of “The Top 100 Attorneys” in Northern California. They were among the attorneys who received the highest point totals in the magazine’s nomination, research and peer-reviewed process.

Galloway, a senior partner in the Walnut Creek defense firm of Galloway, Lucchese, Everson & Picchi, has been selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America for more than 10 years. Buccola, a former Sacramento County Bar Association Attorney of the Year honoree, is a senior partner in the nationally known personal injury firm of Dreyer Babich Buccola & Callaham. Oft-honored for his work on the PG&E Chapter 11 case, Lopes chairs Howard Rice Nemerovsky Canady Falk & Rabkin’s bankruptcy & reorganization group and is a director of the San Francisco firm.
