Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented, multi-phase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Because Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, they limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public.
