Mr. Stio is a partner in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department and a member of the firm’s Privacy, Security and Data Protection group where he regularly counsels health care, financial services and educational institution clients on data privacy and security issues.

A statewide survey of lawyers who have been in practice for at least 5 years leads to the nomination of the best attorneys they have personally observed in action. Candidates are also added from searches by an attorney-led research staff for those who have attained certain honors or achievements. A research department examines the background and experience of each candidate. Point totals are calculated from the balloting and qualitative evaluation steps. Candidates are grouped according to primary area of practice. Members of a blue ribbon panel, selected from those with high point totals, review a list of candidates from their practice area. Final candidates are those with the highest point totals from each category. Only 5 percent of the total lawyers in the state are selected. No aspect of this advertisement has been approved by the Supreme Court of New Jersey. See www.SuperLawyers.com for more detail.
