In its 2017 listings, Oregon Super Lawyers Magazine has named ten of Bullard Law’s attorneys as either Oregon Super Lawyers® or Oregon Rising Stars®.
Every year Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, selects attorneys from over 70 practice areas and varying firm sizes to determine the state’s outstanding lawyers. Lawyers included in the listings have attained a high level of peer recognition and professional achievement. No more than 5% of lawyers in the state are named as Super Lawyers and up to 2.5% as Rising Stars. Bullard Law attorneys listed in either the 2017 Oregon Super Lawyers or Oregon Rising Stars include: Francis T. Barnwell, C. Akin Blitz, Kathryn M. Hindman, Thomas I. Kramer, Victoria L. Macpherson, David J. Riewald, Maryann Yelnosky, Kara Backus, Megan J. Crowhurst and Benjamin P. O’Glasser.
Attorneys selected by Super Lawyers are determined through an extensive four part patented process. Attorneys must first be nominated into the candidate pool through either a managing partner survey, peer nominations, third party feedback or by the Super Lawyers research team. An attorney-led research team then evaluates the candidates on 12 indicators: verdicts/settlements, transactions, representative clients, experience, honors and awards, special licenses/certifications, position within law firm, bar and/or professional activity, pro bono and community service, scholarly lectures/writings, education/employment background and other outstanding achievements. Next, candidates are reviewed by a panel of peers within their practice area. During the final evaluation phase candidates are grouped into categories by the size of their firm, and those with the highest point totals from their category are selected.
The Super Lawyers selection process is aimed 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.” Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis and are published in Super Lawyers Magazine nationwide, as well as within state and regional magazines and newspapers.
