Three Cordell & Cordell divorce lawyers from Virginia and Pennsylvania recently received recognition from Super Lawyers Magazine.

Out of the Pittsburgh office, divorce attorney Jamie Spero was named a Super Lawyer, while Richard Julius was named a Rising Star in the family law practice area. Attorney Charles Hatley was named a Rising Star in Virginia. This is the fifth consecutive year Ms. Spero has been named a Super Lawyer after previously making the Rising Stars list six times. Mr. Julius has been named a Rising Star six years in a row, while Mr. Hatley received the distinction for the fourth straight year.

Super Lawyers is a Thomson Reuters rating service of outstanding lawyers 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 each state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers for the distinction. The annual Rising Stars 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 outstanding attorneys.

Lawyers are asked to nominate the best lawyers age 40 or younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. They are advised to select attorneys they have personally observed in action – whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.
