About Super Lawyers

The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers magazines, in leading city and regional magazines, and in newspapers across the United States. Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition in the legal profession. The annual selections are made using a process that includes nominations of attorneys, independent research by their peers, and finally, peer reviews by a Blue Ribbon panel. Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” recognizes top up-and-coming lawyers who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing ten or fewer years. Visit superlawyers.com for more information.
