Super Lawyers Selected Using Rigorous Process
Super Lawyers uses a patented process to select outstanding lawyers in each state to include on their annual list of Super Lawyers, which appears in both regional and state editions of Super Lawyers Magazines. No more than 5% of the practicing attorneys in each state are featured on the list each year.
Understanding the selection process used by Super Lawyers may can additional confidence that attorneys who receive this notable recognition earned their place on the list instead of buying their way onto the list. The rigorous selection procedure used by Super Lawyers includes a four-part selection process that begins with nominations.
Lawyers nominate other lawyers that they believe meet the highly selective required criteria to be on considered for the list. The nominations process has several safeguards to prevent cheating the system, such as lawyers cannot nominate themselves, nominations are tracked by who nominated whom, and in-firm nominations must also have nominations from outside of the law firm.
Each candidate is thoroughly vetted and researched by the research department. The research department examines 12 indicators of achievement and recognition. Experience, verdicts, settlements, honors, awards, special certifications, and professional activity are some of the information gathered during the research phase.
In the third step, a panel consisting of the candidates with the highest point values from step one and step two is asked to review attorneys from their practice areas. The panelists rate the attorneys on a scale of one to five.
Candidates are divided into four groups based on the law firm size. The attorneys are compared and chosen based on the research, indicators, and peer review. Before a lawyer is included on the published list, the lawyer’s current standing is confirmed with the state’s licensing authority, and a final internet search is performed to ensure there are no matters that would reflect poorly on the lawyer. According to Super Lawyers, it has been recognized by courts and bar associations across the county as a leading legal rating service based upon its very stringent selection process.
