Super Lawyers Award Announcement
October 25th, 2018 by Tad Nelson in Uncategorized
The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates is pleased to announce that founder and attorney Tad A. Nelson has been selected, for the sixth consecutive year, as a Super Lawyer. The award is indicative of Nelson’s success in the legal field, and is a significant honor.
What Is Super Lawyers and How Does the Selection Process Work?
According to the Super Lawyers’ website, Super Lawyers is an attorney rating service that focuses on outstanding lawyers in more than 70 practice areas. The process of selecting an attorney is no quick or easy feat – each candidate is evaluated on 12 different indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.
The process starts with a nomination; lawyers cannot nominate themselves, nor can they campaign for nominations. After a nomination has been received, independent research on the 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement are conducted. While each indicator is given different weight, they are all considered to be important by Super Lawyers. The 12 factors are whether or not the lawyer holds any special licenses or certifications, has received awards or honors, years of experience, representative clients, transactions, verdict and settlement history, their position within the law firm, bar status and professional activities, pro bono work and community service, scholarly lectures and writings, education and employment background, and any other outstanding achievements.
The process doesn’t end there – after independent research is conducted, a comprehensive peer evaluation phase takes place. Finally, there is the final selection. Candidates who are under the age of 40 or have been practicing for fewer than 10 years may be selected as a Super Lawyers’ “Rising Star,” which comprises approximately 2.5 percent of candidates. Approximately five percent of lawyers are selected to Super Lawyers.
