Jessica Sleater

My selection to the Rising Stars list has helped me with starting my own firm this year. The prestige of being selected has enticed clients and other attorneys, who recognize the honor, to reach out to me and our firm to refer business to them and collaborate on cases. When you are the new firm, this type of selection makes a big difference to your credibility.

-- Jessica Sleater, Andersen Sleater Sianni LLC
Devin McNulty

Referral lawyers trust Super Lawyers because they know the lawyers selected for the honor are the best of the best. Being selected to the Super Lawyers list increases your firm's brand awareness and reassures referral lawyers that your peers hold you in high regard for your professional competence and expertise.

-- Devin McNulty, Chandler McNulty, LLP

Super Lawyers Readership Survey

What I like most about Super Lawyers Magazine is that it provides another resource for verification of the quality of lawyers in the community. The vetting process provides a very accurate reflection of the quality of lawyers.

Atessa Chehrazi

There are quite a few ranking services out there; Super Lawyers distinguishes itself in that it does not follow a "pay to play" model, and in that the designation is correct. Also, they use popular media to publicize the designation which means the information is accessible to clients (not just potential clients but existing) and not just other attorneys. I was surprised to receive congratulations from existing clients on being listed, which gives a sense of the effectiveness of the listing for referrals.

-- Atessa Chehrazi, Jackson & Hertogs LLP
Ron Bender

Super Lawyers is an effective and efficient way for lawyers to recognize their quality peers and for lawyers and others seeking legal advice to have easy-to-use access to top practitioners in every area of law.

-- Ron Bender, Levene, Neale, Bender, Yoo & Golubchik L.L.P.
Andrew L. Oringer

The Super Lawyers listings have broad distribution, and get significant attention from clients and other lawyers in the market. In a region with many lawyers like New York, the shorter and more specific lists get additional attention. I think that recognition from one's peers is something special in itself.

-- Andrew L. Oringer, The Wagner Law Group
Mark Lanier

Super Lawyers earns its name as the publication who is hot in each field. It is used by potential clients, and even by lawyers. We always see it as an honor to earn a listing.

-- Mark Lanier, The Lanier Law Firm
David B. Markowitz

Most directories do a great job reporting the top 20 or 30 lawyers in town. But finding that other 50 to 100 people who really deserve recognition, and need the recognition, to help establish themselves is what Super Lawyers does best.

-- David B. Markowitz, Markowitz Herbold PC
Theodore J. Fournaris

Super Lawyers is a tremendous way to raise visibility, build credibility, and best of all, reaffirm the relationships I have worked so hard to establish.

-- Theodore J. Fournaris, Fournaris & Sanet PA

J.D. 'Johnny' Cargill

The reason we value our selections to Super Lawyers and the attorneys that are honored is because it comes from a peer review—the nominations come from their own peers. These are people they’ve worked beside and against at times, and still have that respect to nominate. The process that Super Lawyers puts through each and every nomination to select the best of the best truly makes it an honor.

Nancy S. Shilepsky

One of the things that is really impressive about Super Lawyers is the integrity of the selection process. The more I have learned about it, the more impressed I have been. It’s not a situation where you select people for Super Lawyers to interview. [Super Lawyers asks for feedback from] people who might not say good things about you: opposing counsel and your competitors. If all of those people come out and actually rate you highly, then that says a lot and I think it is really one of the strengths of Super Lawyers.

-- Nancy S. Shilepsky, Sherin and Lodgen LLP

Being listed [in Super Lawyers] provides objective evidence of being recognized for excellence by peer nominations and independent verification.

Michelle Tiger

Super Lawyers is different from other ratings services because not only is there a peer review, but there’s research that goes into it. Super Lawyers is looking not only at what your peers say, which is important, but the types of activities you do—pro bono, results that you’ve had and other things. It’s a more comprehensive review.

Karl P. Numinen

I practice in a small firm in a rural area. Being listed in Super Lawyers has been a great benefit because I receive calls from attorneys who found me on the Super Lawyers list who may not otherwise have known about my areas of practice. And when I consider referring a client to an attorney, being listed in Super Lawyers is the only criteria I need.

-- Karl P. Numinen, Numinen, DeForge & Toutant, PC
Adina R. Bergstrom

Super Lawyers has increased my firm's presence nationally, as other firms have been able to reliably identify our areas of practice and years of expertise.

It is a great honor to be selected to a Super Lawyers list. Clients want their lawyer to be well recognized in the legal and business community, and the Super Lawyers designation has raised my profile and personal brand.

-- Gary W. Marsh, Troutman Pepper Hamilton Sanders LLP
Jason Paul Beaulieu

The credibility obtained by the peer-driven selection to a Super Lawyers list has greatly enhanced our marketing efforts and resulted in new clients. It also tends to reassure existing clients that they have made a good decision.

-- Jason Paul Beaulieu, Timmerman Beaulieu & Hinkle, LLC
Keith A. Williams

The Super Lawyers distinction is a valuable resource for solo practitioners like myself. It provides outside, third-party validation that is so important in an overall marketing strategy.

-- Keith A. Williams, Law Offices of Keith A. Williams, P.A.
Anna N. Martinez

Being selected to the Rising Stars list is crucial to building public confidence in my abilities as a younger lawyer. Knowing that this accolade is the result of peer nominations is essential for creating trust with the legal community and prospective clients. Similarly I use the Super Lawyers list to vet those lawyers that I do not know well when referring cases to someone outside of my practice area or focus as a plaintiff's lawyer, i.e., when searching for defense counsel.

-- Anna N. Martinez, Martinez Law Colorado LLC
Brandon M. Schwartz

Inclusion on the Rising Stars list immediately validates you to a prospective client as a knowledgeable and effective attorney. Because the Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists are limited to the top attorneys in the state, being included on either list immediately gives credence to your abilities to handle the prospective client's matter and lends credibility to any referral I have received.

-- Brandon M. Schwartz, Schwartz Law Firm
Stuart J. Reich

I strongly believe that being able to claim Super Lawyers recognition enhances my brand, and is a key component of online reputation marketing.

-- Stuart J. Reich, Law Offices of Stuart J. Reich, PLLC
Darren A. McNair

Being selected to the Rising Stars list has increased my business because potential clients can identify with the Super Lawyers brand and recognition. Clients have told me that they believe the Super Lawyers recognition gives me more credibility and helps make their decision to hire me.

Being part of Super Lawyers/Rising Stars has been a great way to increase my business network, not only for referrals of cases to me but it also gives me a lot of confidence referring cases to others on the list. Great job, Super Lawyers!

Sofia Adrogué

Super Lawyers/Rising Stars’ methodology is an initial point of differentiation—a powerful base line for seasoned expertise. The selection process with its independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations, ensures a credible brand that merits highlighting online, as well as via print.

-- Sofia Adrogué, Diamond McCarthy LLP
Michelle M. Kniess

I practice in family law, so a lot of my clients come to me through the internet and online searches. They as a group, tend not to necessarily reach out to friends for an attorney referral; they are dealing with the sensitive issues that they don't necessarily want to share with other people. So they don't have anything to measure the worth of an attorney by. There's a lot of attorneys online. There's a lot of rating services online. Super Lawyers is a process that is I think well-known and it has been tested and proven to be a very good system. And so clients have mentioned to me or even potential clients in their initial consultation have mentioned 'oh, I see you're a Super Lawyer you've been named to the Rising Stars list and they've cited that as one of the reasons they sought me out.

I have noticed a substantial jump in referrals since I have been selected to the Super Lawyers list and believe that it is an instant boost in credibility among the bar as all attorneys strive to get selected to the Super Lawyers list.

A new client retained my services in the past week after she was informed of my addition to the Rising Stars list in Super Lawyers Magazine; I strongly believe the selection to the Rising Stars list made a contribution to her decision on whether to retain my services.

Christopher A. Macey, Jr.

My selection assures referral sources that they can refer clients to me with a certain level of confidence that I will be an effective advocate for the client they referred. It also instills potential clients with confidence that they are receiving quality representation from me and the other attorneys at my firm who have also been selected. In addition, it is a nice for me to be able to communicate my selection to the Super Lawyers list to clients and potential clients given the ethical restrictions on attorney advertising that otherwise exist.

-- Christopher A. Macey, Jr., Bell & Bell LLP
Eugene R. Egdorf

I value my selection to Super Lawyers primarily because it’s a validation of my abilities and what I’ve managed to do all these years. It also helps instill into clients a confidence level that they are represented by someone who is known in the industry as being reliable.

Sam Aguiar

Selection to the Rising Stars list was a great feeling of validation. It also helps in the credentialing process with prospective new clients. In this era, there are so many resources at the disposal of one seeking the best lawyer for his or her case. Being able to confirm recognition by peers goes a long way towards showing the prospective client that you've earned the reputation of one who is highly experienced and capable in handling matters such as his or hers. I believe that peer recognition and client testimonials are currently the two most powerful tools in credentialing a lawyer. Don't believe me? Just look at the reliance we ourselves now place upon reviews and testimonials from Trip Advisor, Open Table, Google, Yelp, Angie's List and so many other resources in making our own decisions of businesses to choose and products to buy.

-- Sam Aguiar, Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers
Thomas E. Lavender III

Being selected to the Super Lawyers list for the past eight years has been very helpful to me receiving referral business. It is an objective measure new referrals can check when they have initial questions while vetting me to be their attorney. I use the Super Lawyers list as a place to go when looking for attorneys to refer clients who have legal needs that are outside my practice area. Seeing a lawyer on the Super Lawyers list gives me confidence that I am referring a client to a quality attorney with expertise in the needed practice area.

-- Thomas E. Lavender III, Lavender Hoffman, LLC
Laurie Mack-Wagner

I really value Super Lawyers because it enables me to reach another level in my business, by identifying me as being particularly skilled in the field by others who are in my field. And so it gives an added sense of credibility that I think the average person would not otherwise know about.

Jess Block Nerren

We engage in both print and online opportunities with Super Lawyers—it’s one of our biggest marketing endeavors that our firm participates in each year. We have seen really positive results. A number of our attorneys send me the feedback they receive once everything runs. They’ll get congratulatory notices from people that they know, referral sources, and even people that they interned for 20 years ago before they were partners at the firm. They enjoy that feedback, which is meaningful in such a connected world such as the legal sector.

Super Lawyers advertising keeps me aware of the status of the attorneys listed and of their specialties. It is also useful when I am seeking to refer a client to an attorney who specializes in fields that my firm does not.

Debra F. Bogaards

My Platinum Profile ad has definitely paid off! Our ad in the Super Lawyers section of San Francisco magazine reaches non-lawyers. Now, people at the gym, Peet’s, the dry cleaners tell me that they had no idea of what I do, and they will come to me when they need a lawyer. The Super Lawyers selection is like the “stamp of approval." Once I meet with a prospective client, I don’t need to tell him or her about my 32+ years of practice and successful results. The prospective client says: Oh, I know. You're rated by Super Lawyers!

-- Debra F. Bogaards, ADR Services, Inc.
Steven A. Mindel

Our affiliation with Super Lawyers has been very effective in growing our Family Law Practice. By advertising in Los Angeles magazine, we are able to reach a wide consumer audience which is virtually impossible to do with an 18-attorney firm.

I have always found my listing on the Super Lawyers list to be an incredibly profitable producer of new clients. It also has helped cement my reputation and relationships with existing clients.

Because the process by which attorneys are selected to either the Super Lawyers or Rising Stars lists ensures that only those attorneys included have excelled in their practice field, have a special level of knowledge or expertise, and have positive peer recognition, I am confident in using the Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists as a referral source for my own clients.

Lyle A. Wallace

In some cases, when I need to make a referral to a lawyer specializing in a practice area where I have no personal relationships, there are a few criteria that I look at and Super Lawyers recognition is one of those. My experience is that lawyers recognized on the Super Lawyers list have a high degree of expertise in their area of specialty and to a person have taken great care of my clients.
