Cordell & Cordell Clearfield divorce attorney Tyson C. Stokes was recently named a Rising Star in family law by Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters rating service of outstanding attorneys.

Mr. Stokes, who earned his Juris Doctor from Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco, received the distinction for the first time. He was previously nominated in 2017 by his peers to be one of the National Advocates “Top 40 Under 40” in the area of family law. He is a member of the Utah State Bar Association.

Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding attorneys from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional development. 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 the distinction.

The annual Super Lawyer 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 40 or under, or who have been practicing law 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
