Each year, attorneys working in more than 70 different practice areas and all 50 states are considered, but only the top 5% in each state are selected for the prestigious Super Lawyer Award.

Lawyers are nominated by their peers for consideration for Super Lawyer honors based on first-hand observations. After a thorough process primarily built on peer evaluation and some independent research during the discovery phase, candidates are evaluated based on 12 indicators of professional excellence. Attorneys who make the cut are named as Super Lawyers in the fourth quarter of each year.
