We were proud to announce that our founder, Attorney Conrad Willkomm, had been nominated and included in the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ lists for 2014 - 2017. Certainly, this was cause for celebration, but our team realizes that recognition in our field—and how it is determined—is not always readily understood by those who matter most: the clients and communities we serve.
Super Lawyers® holds their lists under great scrutiny to ensure the quality of all those that they honor, particularly on their Rising Stars℠ list. Their selection and vetting process has received a patent as a third-party rating system and continues to ensure an impartial and thorough perspective on all lawyers leading the field in their communities all over the country.
How the Rising Stars℠ List Selection Works
Super Lawyers® employs a multi-tier peer and third party reviewed selection process for theRising Stars℠ List. This applies specifically to lawyers who are 40 years old or younger or have been practicing law 10 years or less and show great promise with their practice.
The Rising Stars℠ list selection process includes:
- Formal nominations from industry peers. These nominations are tracked to ensure that votes are not traded or campaigns for nominations are not used.
- Nomination research. The research team at Super Lawyers® vets all nominations for exemplary distinctions, whether it be education, certifications, honors, or distinguished results for their clients.
- Candidate evaluation. Candidates are awarded points in a dozen different categories. These include verdicts and settlements, experience, awards and honors, and bar and other professional activity.
- Final reviews. Final candidates are organized into practice areas and firm sizes. Point totals are calculated and winners are determined.
By the end of this process, only five percent of the total lawyers initially nominated are honored and announced via Super Lawyers® and their magazine.
