Selected for Super Lawyers® & Rising Stars℠ Lists
Super Lawyers® utilizes a patented multi-phase selection process that strives to
recognized lawyers with high credibility and peer recognition. As the
website states, their goal is create a "credible, comprehensive,
and diverse list of outstanding attorneys." To achieve this, the
selection process is broken into three parts: creation of the candidate
pool by formal and information nominations, as well as research; evaluation
of lawyers based on 12 indicators; and peer evaluation, which is also
known as "blue ribbon review." In the end, only 5% of lawyers
in the state are selected for inclusion. The selection process for the
Super Lawyers® Rising
