The Rising Stars list is developed using the same patented multiphase selection process used for the Super Lawyers list except:
All attorneys first go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list, but meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements, then go through the Rising Stars selection process.
Rising Stars lists are available in every market that has an existing Super Lawyers list, except for Alaska and San Diego.
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. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
