How Does Super Lawyers® Decide Who to Recognize?
To comprehend the importance of Super Lawyers® recognition, you may need to understand the process:
First, lawyers are nominated by their peers, or identified by the Super Lawyers Research Team. Lawyers cannot nominate themselves, nor campaign for a nomination.
Second, Super Lawyers® conducts in-depth independent research, considering factors like:
- Verdicts and settlements
- Representative clients
- Experience and education
- Honors and awards
- Special licenses and certifications
- Professional activity
- Bar memberships
- Pro bono work and community involvement
- Publications and lectures
Next, lawyers who make it through phase 2 are evaluated by their peers. Only attorneys who are already recognized by Super Lawyers® can serve on the “Blue Ribbon Panel” and provide peer evaluations.
Ultimately, final selections are made based on region and firm size. Once again, only 5% of attorneys are selected!
