About the Selection Process
Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process, drawing from the 4 steps below.
Step 1: Peer nominations and evaluations. Lawyers cannot nominate themselves and are prohibited from campaigning.
Step 2: Independent Research by Super Lawyers. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Indicators are not treated equally, and some have higher point values than others. The 12 indicators are: special licenses/certifications, honors/awards, experience, representative clients, transactions, verdicts/settlements, position within law firm, bar and/or professional activity, pro bono and community service, scholarly lectures/writings, education/employment background, and other outstanding achievements.
Step 3: Peer Evaluation by Practice Area. Also known as “blue ribbon review.” Candidates in each practice area with the highest points from steps one and two are asked to serve on the blue ribbon panel. The panelists are provided with a list of candidates from their practice areas to review, rating them on a scale of one to five.
Step 4: Final Selection. Candidates are grouped into four categories. Candidates with the highest point totals from each category are selected. A representative number of small, medium, and large firm attorneys are selected.
It is important to note that 5% of attorneys selected to Super Lawyers, with only 2.5% of attorneys selected to Rising Stars. Eligible candidates for Rising Stars must be 40 years or younger and have been in practice 10 years or less.
