Super Lawyers is one of the most prominent and respected rating services in the industry. Each year the organization’s patented selection process is used to identify the most accomplished and trusted legal counselors in every state and major region in the country.
The Super Lawyers selection process includes:
- Nominations from peers or the Super Lawyers research team
- Independent research on candidates by the Super Lawyers team
