Super Lawyers ® (published by Thomson Reuters) is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state, and 2.5 percent for Rising Stars, are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive these honors. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys. Its list of Rising Stars honors practitioners under 40 or in practice 10 years or less who've achieved this honor.
