How Are Super Lawyers® Members Chosen?

Super Lawyers® has a patented selection process that cannot be imitated by any other awards group. This meticulous methodology is part of the reason why the organization is so widely trusted by legal professionals and clients alike.

The Super Lawyers® selection process includes:

  • Nominations: Nominees are sent to Super Lawyers® along with explanations as to why they deserve to be named as a Super Lawyers® member for that year. Third-party nominations are typically more valuable than those sent by attorneys from the same law firm.
  • Analysis: Promising nominees are analyzed using a 12-point system that considers all sorts of factors that go into an outstanding attorney. Case results, total experience, other awards, pro bono work, and more are all considered.
  • Blue Ribbon Panel: Attorney nominations that are truly outstanding after the analysis process are forwarded to a Blue Ribbon Panel of renowned legal experts to conduct a final review of their qualifications and accomplishments.
  • Background check and selection: Finalists are checked one last time to ensure they are within good standing with their local bar associations. If they are, then they will make the final selection and be named as Super Lawyers® members for that year.

Due to the steep scrutiny of the selection process, no more than 5% of all attorneys will be named Super Lawyers® members each year. The Rising Stars℠ selection process is similar, except it is reserved for attorneys who are younger than 40 or who have less than 10 years of total practice experience. Due to these extra restrictions, no more than 2.5% of all attorneys can be named Rising Stars℠ members each year.
