About Super Lawyers

Super Lawyers states that its process involves selection of attorneys “using a patented multiphase selection process combining peer nominations and evaluations with independent research. They report that each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, and selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. Super Lawyers advises that the objective is to create a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Regarding its Rising Stars category, Super Lawyers states, “To be eligible for inclusion in the Rising Stars rating, a candidate 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, they add, and those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list but who meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements are eligible for the Rising Stars selection process.”
