Super Lawyers honors top attorneys from over 70 practice areas and firms of all sizes across the country. Attorneys are nominated by their peers, validated by third-party independent research, and evaluated by a highly credentialed panel of attorneys prior to final selection. Candidates are evaluated on 12 indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition.
These exclusive lists feature attorneys who attain high degrees of peer recognition and professional achievement, and serve as a valuable resource for both consumers seeking legal counsel and referring attorneys. In each state, no more than 5% of attorneys are selected by Super Lawyers, and just 2.5% are recognized on the Rising Stars list.
Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country.
