Only up to five percent of attorneys per jurisdiction are named Super Lawyers. Selecting the attorneys includes peer nominations by seasoned attorneys followed by detailed evaluations, which are matched against third-party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on a state-by-state basis annually.

No more than two-and-a-half percent of attorneys in a state are named Rising Stars. The lawyers who make this list must be under 40 years old or have less than 10 years of legal experience. They go through the same selection process as Super Lawyers, excluding the peer evaluations.
