Attorneys tapped by Super Lawyers represent only five percent of metropolitan New York-area lawyers. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations, all of which result in a diverse listing of the top attorneys in each state. Lawyers are also asked to nominate Rising Stars, the best attorneys who are 40 or under or who have been practicing for 10 years or less, who they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.
