The Super Lawyers list is published by Law & Politics and distributed as an insert in leading newspapers and regional magazines across the country. More than 70 practice areas are covered. To select attorneys for the list, Law & Politics uses a multi-step selection process that takes approximately nine months. The foundation of the process is a survey sent to all lawyers who have been in practice for at least five years in states where the survey is conducted. In addition to the survey, Law & Politics researches credentials of nominees, assembles a blue-ribbon review panel of leading attorneys from each practice area, directly contacts lawyers and law firm representatives, verifies data and conducts a good-standing review of candidates.
