Most of the firm’s recipients are multi-year winners in their respective categories.
Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third-party research. Every candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. Florida Super Lawyers also recognizes Rising Stars, which represent lawyers under the age of 40, or who have practiced law for fewer than 10 years, and who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
