Pennsylvania Super Lawyers are those who, through a rigorous, multiphase peer review process, have been identified as having attained a high degree of peer recognition while demonstrating ethical practices and significant professional achievement within their areas of expertise. The comprehensive selection process utilized by Thomson Reuters includes peer nominations and evaluations coupled with independent third-party research. Rising Stars, who are selected through a similar process, are the top up-and-coming lawyers in Pennsylvania who are either 40 years of age or less, or have been practicing law for 10 years or less.
