Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process, including a statewide survey of lawyers, independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys.

Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.

The Rising Stars selection process is identical to the Super Lawyers process, with one exception: to be eligible, a candidate must be either age 40 years old or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less. Only 2.5 percent of Ohio attorneys are selected for the Rising Stars list.

Super Lawyers can be found online where lawyers can be searched by practice area and location.
