Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country. The selection process includes peer nominations, review by a blue-ribbon panel and independent research. Candidates are evaluated based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement including verdicts, settlements, transactions, representative clients, experience, honors and awards, special licenses and certifications, positions within law firm, bar and other professional activity, pro bono and community service, scholarly lectures and writings, education and employment background and other outstanding achievements.
