Super LawyersFour Cordell & Cordell Pennsylvania divorce attorneys recently received recognition from Super Lawyers Magazine, a Thomson Reuters rating service of outstanding lawyers.

Jaimie Collins, Richard Julius, and Ashley L. Folio Morgan were named Rising Stars in the family law practice area, while Jamie Spero was named a Super Lawyer.

Ms. Collins, a Litigation Attorney in the firm’s Philadelphia office, earned the distinction for the first time. Previously, she was a recipient of the Villanova Law School Dorothy Day Service Award and earned Philadelphia Bar Association’s Eve Biskind Klothen Law Student Pro Bono Distinction.

Mr. Julius, a Senior Lead Litigator in the Pittsburgh office, made the list for the fifth consecutive year.

Ms. Folio Morgan, a Senior Litigation Attorney in the Cranberry Township office, previously received the award in 2015.

Ms. Spero, a Senior Litigation Attorney in the Pittsburgh office, was recognized as Rising Star in 2008 and from 2010 to 2014. This is the fourth straight year she has been named a Super Lawyer.

Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have obtained 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.

For the Rising Stars list, lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are age 40 or younger, 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, visit
