What Makes a Super Lawyer
The Super Lawyer ranking represents the output of a rigorous, patented evaluation designed to determine the top 5 percent of attorneys in a state. It begins with a nomination process, where the committee receives nominations of outstanding lawyers practicing in a jurisdiction. Each lawyer must usually be nominated by another member of the legal community outside of their own firm. Once the nominations are finished. The committee begins researching the attorneys based on the 12 categories that the Super Lawyer ranking is judged on: verdicts and settlements, representative clients, transactions, experience, honors and awards, position within their firm, special certifications and licenses, scholarly work, work within the professional community, pro bono work, educational and employment background, and any other outstanding achievements that the candidates may have. The candidates are then put through several rounds of selection based on committees of their peers, which eventually make the final selections for Super Lawyer each year.
