RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Best Best & Krieger LLP is pleased to announce that attorneys Isabel Safie and Jill Tremblay were selected to the 2017 Southern California Super Lawyers Rising Stars list.

To be selected as a Rising Star, the attorney must be under age 40 or in practice for less than 10 years, and must have demonstrated significant achievements in their practice area.
Safie, a partner, was recognized in the area of Employee Benefits. This is her third year appearing on the list. She represents public and private sector clients on the design of employee benefit programs and issues presented by the retirement programs and welfare benefit plans they establish and maintain for their employees. She counsels clients on applicable tax requirements as well as fiduciary obligations under federal, state and local pension laws. Safie earned her law degree at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law.
Tremblay, an associate, was recognized in the Estate and Probate category. Her practice focuses on estate planning, including the preparation of revocable and irrevocable trusts, wills, powers of attorney, and advance health care directives. In addition, Jill provides legal services to a broad range of public and private sector clients. Tremblay earned her law degree at Pepperdine University School of Law.
The annual Rising Stars selections are made via a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area.
