About Super Lawyers®
Super Lawyers® (www.superlawyers.com), 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. The selections are made annually using a rigorous multi-phased process, including a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. Lawyers cannot nominate themselves, and in-firm votes are only counted if they are matched by an out-of-firm nomination.
The object of the Super Lawyers® selection process is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource to assist attorneys and consumers in the search for legal counsel.
Super Lawyers® is published as a special supplement in leading newspapers and city and regional magazines across the country. Super Lawyers® magazine features articles about attorneys named to the Super Lawyers® list, is distributed to all attorneys in the state or region, the lead corporate counsel of Russell 3000 companies and the ABA-approved law school libraries.
Polling, research and selection are performed by Law & Politics, a publication of Key Professional Media, Inc. Law & Politics has been publishing legal magazines since 1990 and Super Lawyers® since 1991.
