Super Lawyer accepts only peer nominations who have personally observed the nominated attorney in action, whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand observation in the courtroom. Each lawyer is given a score based on the number of nominations he or she receives and the source of those nominations. Nominations received from lawyers in other firms count for significantly more points than nominations received from lawyers in the same firm. The goal for Super Lawyer is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys.
