Super Lawyers is perhaps most well-known for our lists, rating attorneys in each state using our patented selection process. But an important part of Super Lawyers is our editorial team, whose hard work regularly produces top-notch features on our selected attorneys, which are included in each issue of Super Lawyers Magazine. Earlier this year, we told you about two awards for which we were considered, and we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve recently received two more.

The Minnesota Magazine & Publishing Association (MMPA) is an organization comprised of publishing members, associates or vendors, freelancers, educational institutes and sponsors. MMPA held their 17th Annual Excellence Awards Gala on November 7, 2013 in Minneapolis, recognizing outstanding publishing achievements.
In a year that saw a record number of entries, Super Lawyers came away with two bronze awards in the highly competitive Best Profile category: one for “The Advocate” (from the 2012 Minnesota Super Lawyers Magazine) and the other for “Friending Ted Ullyot” (from the 2012 Super Lawyers Business Edition).
“It’s a huge honor to receive these awards,” said Ross Pfund, managing editor, Super Lawyers. “Our staff worked hard to make these stories happen, and we’re happy with the end result and happy that the MMPA shared our enthusiasm.”
The MMPA awards cap off an already noteworthy year for Super Lawyers journalism-earlier this year, “After Columbine,” from the 2012 Colorado Super Lawyers Magazine, was awarded First Place in the Top of the Rockies Society of Professional Journalists contest in the Legal: General Reporting category. And “Friending Ted Ullyot,” the same article honored by MMPA, was also a finalist for the LA Press Club’s SoCal Journalism Award in the Magazine Personality Profile category, competing against other such high-profile publications as Hollywood Reporter, Playboy and Reason magazine.
Congratulations to the entire editorial team on an outstanding 2013!
