Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Each year, no more than five percent (5%) of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive the honor of Super Lawyers.
The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, 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. While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5% are named to the Rising Stars list.
The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city
and regional magazines and newspapers across the country. Super Lawyers Magazines also feature
editorial profiles of attorneys who embody excellence in the practice of law. For more information
