Law Firm Given Prestigious Super Lawyers Award

February 02, 2012

Super Lawyers is a well-known and respected magazine whose goal is to seek out the best attorneys in the country. Recognized by bar associations and court all across the U.S., they comprehensively produce a list of the very best legal representative by examining them in the light of a number of different areas. This honor of being included on the list cannot be bought; it can only be earned. In order to provide the public with an accurate picture of who they should hire, the selection process has to be above reproach.

One of the categories of rating is peer nominations and evaluations. Once a year, attorneys in every state are given the opportunity to nominate other professionals they believe to be outstanding in their field. This must be an attorney whom they have actually seen at work or know them personally. Although a lawyer may not nominate himself or herself, they are able to select an attorney within their own firm. However, each in-firm nomination must be matched with at least one out-of-firm nomination. In order to make it fair, each nomination has a point value, with in-firm nominations carrying a lesser amount of points.

After the nominations are in, the team at Super Lawyers will carry out extensive research into each attorney. They will examine any previous awards or recognitions as this indicates that they are a high-quality law firm. As well as that, they will look through any certifications and special areas of practice. This team of researchers will also examine to see if there is an attorney worthy of being nominated, but was for some reason looked over in the peer-nomination process. After more examination, the final selection takes place, taking into account those who had the highest point levels in every category.

Understanding how rigorous the selection process is for being named a Super Lawyer helps explain what an honor it is to become a Super Lawyer.
