How Does Super Lawyers Work?
Super Lawyers is a comprehensive rating service that evaluates attorneys in over 70 different practice areas. The service is meant to identify those attorneys who have obtained a significant amount of peer recognition and who have otherwise secured impressive achievements in the legal profession.
Super Lawyers nominates and selects attorneys from a variety of firms — solo, boutique, and big law included. An attorney is first formally nominated by a peer (or by the Super Lawyers research team). Subsequently, Super Lawyers conducts an extensive research process in which it evaluates the attorney’s personal experience, position, bar activity, representative clients, honors, results, credentials, and more to determine whether they show a high degree of professional competence. Attorney-candidates are then evaluated by their practice area peers pursuant to a point ranking, and candidates who have the highest point total for their category are selected.
A Super Lawyers designation is quite meaningful in that it serves as an accurate appraisal of the quality of service and results generated by an attorney. It is therefore valuable to the industry in that it helps prospective clients identify truly excellent attorneys.
