Every year, Super Lawyers Magazine creates a comprehensive list of attorneys from over seventy practice areas, all of whom have achieved a high level of professional accomplishments. Attorneys are chosen using a multiphase selection process, which takes peer nominations and evaluations, as well as independent research, into consideration. Selected attorneys are then featured in publications specific to their geographic area across the country.

To qualify, a “Rising Star ” must have been in their practice for 10 years or less or be 40 years of age or younger at the time of nomination.
