Each year, Super Lawyers evaluates attorneys across the country to honor outstanding lawyers in more than 70 practice areas using a patented multiphase selection process on a state-by-state basis. Just 5% of attorneys are selected as Super Lawyers and only 2.5% are recognized as Rising Stars, which includes attorneys under 40 or those who have been practicing 10 years or less.

Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, combined with independent research. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel.
