Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. Rising Stars follows a similar process to recognize up-and-coming attorneys who are age 40 or younger, or who have been in practice for 10 years or less.
