Each year, less than five percent of the lawyers in Virginia are selected as Super Lawyers and only 2.5 percent are named as Rising Stars. The complete list of honorees is available at www.superlawyers.com/virginia.
Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a multiphase process that includes peer nominations and evaluations as well as independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel.
