Five attorneys from Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak, an elder law firm with locations in Williamsport and State College, have been named 2020 Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars. Attorney Julie Steinbacher, the founding shareholder of Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak, and Attorney Amos Goodall were both named Super Lawyers, which represents the top five percent of practicing attorneys in each state. Attorneys Jenna Franks, Landon Hodges and Brittany Smith were named Rising Stars. 

Produced and compiled by Thomson Reuters, 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 selection process is patented and multiphased, and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Selections are made annually and on a state-by-state basis. More information on the selection process is available here

The Rising Stars selection process is the same as that for Super Lawyers, with one key difference: candidates must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. All attorneys first go through the Super Lawyers selection process, with those not selected as Super Lawyers but meeting either of one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements remaining eligible for the Rising Star designation. While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, Rising Stars represent no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in each state.

This marks Julie's first inclusion in Super Lawyers. She was previously a Rising Star for three straight years from 2011-13. She has been licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania since 2000, and founded the law firm of Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak in 2002. See Julie's Super Lawyers Profile

For Amos, this is his 16th straight year of being designated a Super Lawyer, as he has earned the honor in every year since 2005. He has been practicing law in State College, Pa., since 1974 and along with Kathleen Yurchak, founded the law firm of Goodall & Yurchak, which was acquired by Steinbacher Law in 2015.

Jenna, Landon and Brittany all earned their first Rising Star designation in 2020. Jenna joined Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak in 2017 and has been practicing law in the firm's State College office since that time. Landon also joined the firm in 2017 and works out of both the State College and Williamsport offices. Brittany has been with Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak since 2015 and has been licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania since 2014.
