Super Lawyers® and its subset group Rising Stars℠ are considered two of the most prestigious organizations that review and rate legal professionals from around the globe. Each year, the organizations offer a one-year membership to a small number of attorneys who have earned the right to carry the title based on their outstanding contributions to their practices, communities, and the legal world as a whole.

What is a Super Lawyers® Member?
Super Lawyers® uses a patented multistep selection process to decide which attorneys are deserving of its membership each year. The process begins with nominations from legal peers, clients, and other third parties that have worked with the nominee. Next, independent research is used to look into the nominee’s background, including their settlements, verdicts, total experience, other professional awards, pro bono work, scholarly writings, and much more. A peer evaluation from a Blue Ribbon Panel of highly-esteemed legal professionals chooses the final nominees, who are declared as the winners once a final background check for good standing with legal bars is made.
When all of the nominees are researched and narrowed down, the Super Lawyers® final selection will not include more than 5% of practicing, eligible attorneys. The Rising Stars℠ selection process is the same, except it only considers attorneys who have less than 10 years of experience or who are younger than 40 years old. The extra restrictions mean no more than 2.5% of all practicing, eligible attorneys will be a Rising Stars℠ member each year.
Overall, Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars℠ are truly prestigious and trusted organizations. It is such an honor for so many of our attorneys to have earned 2020 memberships. Thank you to Super Lawyers® for recognizing and rewarding our dedication to excellence.
