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 or under, or who have been practicing for ten years or less. The attorney-led research tem reviews the general survey and credentials of candidates, assigning points based on a set of evaluation criteria. Those with the highest point totals are named to the list.
