The Super Lawyers® assessment process

Super Lawyers® is a rating service for attorneys who have obtained high levels of professional achievement and excellent peer reviews. Its objective is to compile a comprehensive listing of diverse and exceptional attorneys.

A division of Thomson Reuters, the service rates attorneys from more than 70 practice areas. Super Lawyers® selections occur on an annual basis, with selections made through the following patented process:

  • Nominations. Attorneys enter the selection process through peer nominations, managing partner surveys, or the Super Lawyers® search team. Attorneys are not able to nominate themselves.
  • Independent Research. During this phase of the process, evaluators examine 12 indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition. These include:
    • Verdicts and Settlements
    • Honors and awards
    • Pro bono and community service
    • Scholarly lectures and writings
  • Peer evaluation. This third step involves blue ribbon panel members, who evaluate candidates within their practice areas.
  • Final Selection. The last phase determines the final selections. Only five percent of attorneys receive this honor.
