Thomson Reuters performs the polling, research and selection for Super Lawyers and Rising Stars in a process designed to identify lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.  Super Lawyers magazine is a comprehensive and diverse guide to outstanding attorneys, representing a wide range of practice areas, firm sizes and geographic locations. 

The Super Lawyers selection procedure includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.  Only five percent of Oregon attorneys are given this honor.  For Rising Stars, only attorneys age 40 and under, or who have been practicing 10 years or less, can be named.  Rising Stars are selected based on peer nominations and independent research, and only 2.5 percent of eligible attorneys make the cut every year.
