Honors/Awards

  • Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public., Rising Star, Super Lawyers, 2022
  • The National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys uses a thorough selection process to determine the top criminal defense attorneys in each state. With thousands of attorneys in each state, the NACDA's rigorous, independent selection process resolves the challenge of attorneys claiming to be "the best" without basis for such claims. For the accused, finding a well-qualified criminal defense attorney is imperative, and the NACDA's process leaves no doubt as to whom the preeminent criminal defense attorneys are: The attorneys who make the NACDA list must first be nominated by a licensed practicing attorney or one of our in-house research staff members. Second, the NACDA research staff verifies the nominated individuals meet the minimum requirements of membership in the NACDA.   The NACDA processing committee selects a portion of the nominated attorneys to advance to the final selection stage., Top 10 Under 40, National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys, 2021

Each of our distinguished Top 40 under 40 members strives to encompass the knowledge, skill, experience and success held by only the best lawyers in America.  It is our mission to promote a unique and professional networking opportunity for young lawyers, while developing progressive ideas to pursue justice for those injured by the negligence of others, to educate the public about the importance of access to courts that are free of bias and undue influence, and to protect the right of trial by jury., Top 40 Under 40, National Trial Lawyers, 2021
