Super Lawyers rates law professionals in more than 70 practice areas. Its ratings are published in Super Lawyers Magazine, a publication with a readership of 13 million across the United States. By creating a directory of the nation’s best attorneys, the magazine seeks to simplify for both lawyers and consumers the process of choosing legal counsel.
Super Lawyers allows lawyers from each state to nominate colleagues for the Super Lawyer award throughout the year. A research process follows the nominations, during which the staff at Super Lawyers reviews each candidate to learn more about his or her professional achievements and education. The last step of the process is peer evaluation. Then, the staff double checks their research, assigns final scores to each candidate, and prepares the list for publishing.
