Cordell & Cordell Mount Laurel divorce attorney Michelle L. Ferreri was recently named to the 2016 New Jersey Rising Stars list for family law attorneys by Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business.
Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.
Super Lawyers 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.
This is the sixth time Ms. Ferreri has earned the distinction with previous selections in 2009-11 and 2014-16.
She has also been named an “Awesome Attorney” in Family and Matrimonial Law for 2009-2015.
The annual Super Lawyers Selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area.
Lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less, and who they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.
