NEWS: Attorneys in Alaska, Delaware, Florida, Great Plains, Hawaii, Minnesota, Mountain States, Northern California, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Upstate New York, Washington and Washington DC may now NOMINATE ONLINE at My.SuperLawyers.com.
To find specific nomination dates for your region, select your state below.
In this first step of our multi-phase selection process, attorneys are invited to nominate the top lawyers they have personally observed in action, whether as opposing counsel, co-counsel, or through other firsthand observation in the courtroom. The intent is to discourage lawyers from nominating others based purely on reputation.
Each nomination carries a point value. Nominations received from lawyers in other firms carry a significantly higher point value than nominations received from lawyers in the same firm.
In-firm nominations are counted only if an equal or greater number of lawyers outside your firm are nominated.
You may nominate a maximum of 21 lawyers (this means you are limited to seven in-firm nominations, seven out-firm nominations and seven Rising Stars nominations).
No "campaigning" or soliciting nominations from other lawyers as such nominations may be disregarded and lead to disqualification.
Base your nominations on first-hand knowledge, rather than reputation-e.g., opposing counsel, co-counsel or someone you have observed in court or during a transaction.
