Super Lawyers Releases Top Lists

Attorneys on Top Lists embody best of the best in excellence in legal practice

Nov 28, 2012

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, has made its selective Top Lists of attorneys available online. The attorneys named to these Top Lists, which correspond with each region’s Super Lawyers list, have risen to the peak of an already competitive group of accomplished professionals, above and beyond the prestigious honor that is being selected for a Super Lawyers list.

Among the lawyers on the Top Lists are Ted Olson (Top 10, Washington D.C. area), the former solicitor general known for his work on Bush v. Gore and against California’s Proposition 8, Raymond Gill, Jr. (Top 10, New Jersey), a tort litigation specialist who’s made a habit of winning million-dollar results for his clients, and Gedney Howe III (Top 10, South Carolina), a litigator who won what is believed to be the state’s largest-ever personal injury verdict. 

Top List selectees receive the honor by ranking at the very top of the Super Lawyers lists after the completion of the state or region’s peer nomination, independent research and Blue Ribbon Panel review processes. The size and details of each Top List (i.e. Top 10, Top 25 Women, Top 100, etc.) vary based on each state or region, and on how many individuals are selected to the general Super Lawyers lists.

“Super Lawyers has always been devoted to the mission of finding and recognizing excellence in legal practice,” said Julie Gleason, director of research, Super Lawyers. “Our Top Lists take that mission one step further by highlighting those attorneys who exhibit a truly extraordinary level of achievement. We’re proud to herald the accomplishments of these exceptional legal professionals.”
