RPLG is thrilled to announce that Partner Ryan McGinley-Stempel has achieved a significant milestone in his legal career. He has been certified by the State Bar of California as a Specialist in Appellate Law. This prestigious recognition underscores Ryan’s exceptional dedication and expertise in the field of appellate law.
“I’m truly honored to receive this certification from the State Bar,” said Ryan. “I look forward to continuing the expansion of our appellate practice to serve RPLG’s clients.”
Ryan’s achievement reflects his commitment to going above and beyond the standard licensing requirements.

To become a certified specialist, attorneys must meet stringent criteria, including:
- Passage of a written examination in the legal specialty area.
- A minimum of five years of continuous legal practice, with at least 25% of the time devoted to the specialty area.
- Completion of continuing education in the specialty area beyond the requirements for general licensees.
- Demonstrated comprehensive experience in the specialty area through a variety of cases.
- Positive evaluations from fellow attorneys and judges familiar with the attorney’s work in the specialty area.
The State Bar of California’s certification program sets a high standard, and Ryan’s recognition is a testament to his exceptional legal abilities.
“Ryan’s dedication to excellence and his ongoing commitment to professional development make him a valuable asset to our team,” said Founding Partner Art Hartinger. “His certification as a specialist in appellate law reflects not only his individual success but also enhances the quality of legal services we provide to our clients.”
