Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Attorneys are named to the Super Lawyers list annually on a state-by-state basis by a multiphase selection process. Each candidate is evaluated on twelve indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process includes a statewide survey of lawyers, peer reviews by practice area, and an independent research evaluation of each candidate. Fewer than 5 percent of California lawyers are named to the Super Lawyers list.
