Super Lawyers is a listing of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Attorneys are selected using a rigorous, multiphase process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third-party research. Each candidate is evaluated on twelve indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.

For Rising Stars, lawyers nominate the best attorneys who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing for ten years or less. The attorney-led research team reviews the general survey and credentials of potential candidates, assigning points based on a set of evaluation criteria. Those with the highest point totals are named to the list.
