Significance of the Super Lawyers Recognition
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. Every year, Super Lawyers generates an annual list of the top attorneys for each state and various practice areas. These lists serve as benchmarks in the legal community, informing the public which lawyers exhibit a high standard of competence in their respective fields of practice. 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 Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country.
