Factors include peer evaluations, independent research covering verdicts and settlements, transactions, honors, experience, and special licenses and certifications. Every state in the country has its own listing, completely independent of any advertising or payments, and uses its own system of checks and balances to ensure objectivity. Super Lawyers is special supplement published in nationwide newspapers and magazines and distributed to all attorneys in each state, including corporate counsel and ABA-approved law school libraries.
