Super Lawyers Selection Process
With knowledge of how few lawyers are chosen to be included on a Super Lawyers list, it becomes clear the selection process is especially meticulous. The Super Lawyers selection process is so rigorous in fact, that it is patented for being the most accurate non-biased source for consumers to discover the best lawyers in each state.
What are the details of Super Lawyers praised selection process? The process is based on a point system that consists of multiple phases.
First, the candidate pool of attorneys must be determined. The attorneys can either be added to the candidate pool by the Super Lawyers attorney-led research team, or through nominations. Once the candidate pool is formed, the Super Lawyers research team screens each attorney according to “12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement”. These indicators include honors/awards, experience and verdict settlements.
Then, the lawyers with the most points accumulated are instructed to rate the other lawyers in their practice area on a scale from one to five. The remaining candidates are then placed into categories according to the size of their firm. The lawyers with the highest number of points in each firm-size category are then officially selected to be included on the final Super Lawyers published list.
Congratulations to our attorneys for another year of recognition through this intense selection process.
