GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Grewal Law, PLLC Attorneys Manvir "Mick" S. Grewal, David S. Mittleman and Scott Weidenfeller were selected to the 2020 Michigan Super Lawyers® list, and Attorneys John Fraser and Nolan L. Erickson were named to the 2020 Michigan Rising Stars list. The selection process for these lists is extraordinarily rigorous, resulting in only 5% of the nation's practicing attorneys being included in the Super Lawyers® list, and only 2.5% in the Rising Stars list.
The Super Lawyers® selection process is composed of four steps:
Nominations by a third party, such as through a managing partner survey, third party feedback or simple peer nomination.
Independent research on 12 professional achievement and peer recognition indicators, including verdicts, settlements and pro bono work.
Peer evaluation in which candidates are evaluated by the Blue Ribbon Panel.
If an attorney passes the prior three steps, they are selected either to the Super Lawyers® or Rising Stars list.
There is one distinction between Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars, as the latter is reserved for attorneys 40 years old or younger who are in the first decade of their careers.
Selection to the Super Lawyers® or Rising Stars list requires a high degree of peer recognition for an attorney's accomplishments throughout their legal career, so it is a great honor to pass the selection and review processes and appear in these publications.
