Awards & Recognition

Super Lawyers – Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The patented selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.  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. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public, i.e., lawyers in private practice and Legal Aid attorneys.

American Association for Justice, Top 100 Trial Lawyers – The American Association for Justice is one of the preeminent associations for plaintiffs attorneys in America.  Trial attorneys represent people who are injured and have nowhere else to turn. They seek justice and accountability for clients who are injured by the negligence and misconduct of others and they help individuals and families get their lives back on track after devastating harm.

Our environment is cleaner, our medicine is better and our cars are safer today, thanks to Americans—represented by trial attorneys—who stood up to big corporations and held them accountable in court.

Trial attorneys are committed to ensuring that all people—individuals, families, patients, workers and consumers—can seek justice in our nation’s courtrooms. Trial attorneys fight to preserve a balanced civil justice system and advocate for tough laws to hold industries and corporations accountable when they withhold information that can harm or kill.
