The objective of the Super Lawyers selection process is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys from more than 70 practice areas. 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. No more than 5 percent of a state's lawyers are named to the Super Lawyers list, and no more than 2.5 percent of a state's lawyers are named to the Rising Stars list.
