Super Lawyers is a service that rates lawyers that have contributed extensively
in their profession and are making a great impact. Super Lawyers looks
at exceptional lawyers from over 70 legal practice areas. There is a comprehensive
selection process to ensure that those ranked display the highest caliber
of skill and knowledge about the legal world.
Being recognized in the Super Lawyers ranks is not a light honor. There
is a long process that goes into choosing the lawyers. First a lawyer
must be nominated for the list. Usually they are nominated by peers or
others who have seen the caliber of their work. After the nominations
are submitted, the Super Lawyers committee reviews the candidates and
conducts independent research to look at records such as verdicts, settlements,
honors, etc. Then the nominees are peer reviewed by individuals in the
same practice area as them. After that, they are finally selected for
the different distinctions.
It is a great honor to be included in the Super Lawyers list and we at
Power Rogers & Smith are humbled by the inclusion and so proud of
our attorneys. We look forward to more years of hard-work, dedication
to justice, and fighting for what is right.
