Rex Darrell Berry and Laura Izon Named 2021 Northern California Super Lawyers


Two attorneys at Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo (AALRR) were once again recognized as the top Northern California attorneys in their field by Super Lawyers, a prestigious directory indexing attorneys who exhibit excellence in law. Attorneys honored with a ranking from Super Lawyers undergo a rigorous selection process, including evaluation of peer recognition and professional achievement. Ultimately, just 5% of all lawyers in the state are selected to this list.

Partners Rex Darrell Berry and Laura A. Izon were named to the list this year.

Rex Berry brings nearly 40 years of experience representing clients before federal and state courts, agencies, and arbitration panels. This includes representing employers in wage and hour class actions and other single and multi-plaintiff litigation, restrictive covenant enforcement, employment tort, employee discharge, Title VII, FEHA, FMLA, CFRA, ADEA, and other employment matters. This is the eleventh time he’s been named to the Super Lawyers list.

Laura Izon represents and guides a broad constituency of public sector clients with both their labor and employment needs. Ms. Izon is one of the premier labor negotiators in the state and Governors Newsom, Brown and Schwarzenegger have all relied upon her expertise for their collective bargaining needs. In addition to her negotiations practice, Ms. Izon has a robust advice and counsel practice advising her clients on employee discipline, leaves of absence, wage and hour issues, and employee handbooks and personnel policies. Ms. Izon has been recognized as a Super Lawyer each year since 2009.

“Rex and Laura are both very deserving of this recognition.  They are truly at the top of their profession as skilled attorneys, and their commitment to client service is unmatched.  Our entire firm congratulates them for being recognized as Northern California Super Lawyers again this year,” commented Managing Partner Mark Palin.

Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The patented selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
