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.

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.

Lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 years old or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less, and who they have personally observed in action.
