Super Lawyers, part of Thomas Reuters, is a rating service that honors attorneys in more than 70 practice areas who have achieved a high level of professional accomplishment and peer recognition. The multi-phased selection process involves peer evaluations, peer nominations, and independent third-party research. The exclusive lists of honorees are published in top newspapers and magazines countrywide.

The Rising Stars list honors the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state—those who have been practicing for ten years or less or those who are 40 years old or younger.

Each year, Super Lawyers selects no more than 5% of attorneys in the state to receive these prestigious accolades. To learn more about the Super Lawyers or Rising Stars process, visit their website here.
