A Visual Take on the Super Lawyers Selection Process

At Super Lawyers we've heard it all before....."How many people did she have to petition to be selected?" or even "His advertising dollars got him in the magazine." But see for yourself below and separate fact from fiction.

We take pride in our patented selection process, which produces a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for referring attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Super Lawyers is also part of Thomson Reuters, which has a rich history in the legal world spanning more than 140 years.

Our selected attorneys are the best of the best. From honors and awards to transactions to pro bono work, our research department evaluates each lawyer in the candidate pool based on the 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. And don't forget a representative number of small, medium and large firm attorneys are selected. At the end of the day, five percent of attorneys are selected to the Super Lawyers list with another 2.5 percent selected to the Rising Stars list in each state.

Jason Paul Beaulieu, Founding Partner at Timmerman, Beaulieu, Hinkle & Esworthy, LLC shares with us his thoughts on the rigouressness on our selection process. "The credibility obtained by the peer-driven selection to a Super Lawyers list has greatly enhanced our marketing efforts and resulted in new clients. It also tends to reassure existing clients that they have made a good decision."
