Four Cordell & Cordell Pennsylvania attorneys were recently recognized by Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters rating service of outstanding lawyers.
Jamie Spero (Pittsburgh) was named to the Super Lawyers list while Amy Humbert (Cranberry Township), William Phelan (Philadelphia), and Richard Julius (Philadelphia) were named Rising Stars in the family law practice field.
Ms. Spero has been selected to the Super Lawyers list for three consecutive years and was named a Rising Star six straight years before that.
This is the fourth consecutive year Ms. Humbert, Mr. Julius, and Mr. Phelan have been named Rising Stars.
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 development.
The annual 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. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
Lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. They are instructed to nominate lawyers they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.
The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazine and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country. For more information about Super Lawyers, visit SuperLawyers.com.
