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 through other firsthand courtroom observation.

The lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazine, and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country. For more information, visit
