Super Lawyers® Are Considered to be the Preeminent Professionals in their Field
For years Super Lawyers® has provided detailed information and comprehensive ratings for some of the most impressive attorneys in the state. Through an extensive selection process with a wide variety of detailed criteria, the organization tries to pinpoint and acknowledge the lawyers who are doing the most in their fields. Some of the portions of this critical and scrutinized selection process include:
Forming the candidate pool by:
- Collecting formal and informal nominations
- Researching attorney credentials and histories
Evaluating the candidates by considering their:
- Verdict and settlements
- Representative clients
- Overall experience
- Honors, awards, and accolades
- Special licenses or certifications
- Position within their firm
- Bar or other professional activity
- Pro bono and community service
- Scholarly lectures or writings
- Education and employment history
- “Blue ribbon” process conducted by other lawyers in that practice area
The top-rated candidates are sorted into categories based on the size of their law firms. This ensures that someone running a small firm is not overshadowed by a large, multi-attorney law group. The attorneys with the highest total points in the end for their category are selected. Ultimately, only 5% of lawyers in each state will be selected.
