Super Lawyers Highlights Top Attorneys in Washington

Jul 21, 2016

Eagan, Minn. — Super Lawyers, the Thomson Reuters lawyer rating service, has announced the 2016 Washington Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists. These two lists are comprised of outstanding attorneys who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes nominations, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys. 


The 2016 Washington Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists are published within:

  • Washington Super Lawyers Magazine distributed to more than 20,000 lawyers in Washington and the ABA-accredited law school libraries
  • Washington Super Lawyers list 2016 is published in Seattle Met Magazine and is distributed to more than 278,000 readers
  • Online attorney directory at


Super Lawyers congratulates those attorneys that were selected to a 2016 Washington Super Lawyers Top List, awarded to those who have received the most total points earned during the selection process:


In the 2016 Washington Super Lawyers Magazine, there are several noteworthy stories from the region’s selectees. Super Lawyers interviewed six local attorneys about the days when they knew every other lawyer in town and cases were sometimes aired in the courthouse library, over coffee and freshly baked cookies. Next we explore how Tana Lin’s experience as an immigrant piqued her interest in social justice and wonder along with Seattle litigator Claire Rootjes what it is about those flying fish that out-of-towners like so much.
