Two valley lawyers from the Herum Crabtree firm, Steve Herum and Brett Jolley, have been honored by legal publications. Herum Crabtree represents clients on land use and environmental issues.

Herum, for the fifth straight year, has been named a Northern California Super Lawyer by Law & Politics Magazine. The magazine screened 47,000 lawyers and chose Herum, 57, among its top 5 percent. He was named California Lawyer Magazine’s land use lawyer of the year in 2005.

Jolley, an attorney and shareholder in the Herum Crabtree firm, has been named a “rising star” by Super Lawyers magazine for the second consecutive year, honored as one of the top attorneys under 40 years old in Northern California. Jolley, 35, is president of the state bar’s California’s Youngest Lawyers Association. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara and his law degree from University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law.
