About Super Lawyers: Super Lawyers “recognizes attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their legal practice based on a selection process that includes nominations, independent research, and peer evaluations.” Super Lawyers is a lawyer-rating service that evaluates lawyers in private practice, including solo practitioners and those in plaintiff and defense firms in all areas of legal expertise, and Legal Aid attorneys. Super Lawyers does not evaluate lawyers serving as in-house counsel at businesses, government entities or trade associations because Super Lawyers is designed to be a resource to help in the selection of legal counsel available to be hired by the public.
