Super Lawyers utilizes a multi-phased selection process that includes peer nominations, independent third-party research, and peer reviews by other attorneys in their primary practice area.  Rising Stars recognizes outstanding attorneys who have been in practice for ten or less years or who are forty years old or younger.  No more than 2.5 percent of the attorneys in the state are selected as Rising Stars each year.
