Super Lawyer and Rising Star designations are awarded to attorneys that have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The process involves peer nominations, independent research and peer evaluations. The top 5% of those nominated are selected as Super Lawyers and only 2.5% are chosen as Rising Stars. Candidates are eligible for Rising Stars if they are 40 or younger, or have been in practice 10 years or less.
