Stoel Rives is pleased to announce that two of its California partners have been named Northern California Super Lawyers (www.superlawyers.com
) by San Francisco Magazine: Sandi L. Nichols
and Michael A. Campos
. Approximately 5% of the Northern California Bar members received the distinction. The attorneys’ inclusion on this list indicates that their 46,000 Northern California colleagues and peers nominated them for this honor. Lawyers were selected based on the results of thousands of peer reviews, votes, and on the recommendations of a blue-ribbon panel.
"We are pleased to have them named to this list," said Beth A. Ugoretz, Firm Managing Partner of Stoel Rives. "It is an honor that our peers in the legal community have recognized Sandi and Mike. Their work is a reflection of our firm’s commitment to client service and legal excellence."

From 1983 to 1985 he was the Executive Director of the Board. Mike has been in private practice since 1985. He is also a registered professional engineer (civil and agricultural).
