The selections for this esteemed list are made by the research team at Super Lawyers, which is a service of the Thomson Reuters legal division. Each year, researchers undertake a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by the attorney-led research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check.
