HACKENSACK, N.J., April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- We'd like to congratulate family law attorneys, Carrie S. Schultz and Marc J. Poles, who were recently chosen to be included in this year's editions of Super Lawyers and Super Lawyers' Rising Stars.
For Schultz, this is the sixth time she's been honored in the magazine. Only five percent of lawyers throughout New Jersey are selected for inclusion in the widely-read publication. In addition to being named a Super Lawyer, Schultz also was named to the (201) Magazine Top Lawyers in Bergen County list.
"I'm very honored to be featured in both publications for 2017, and I'm grateful to have also been nominated," stated Schultz. "I take my profession very seriously and take enormous pride in helping my clients with their legal matters. To be recognized for my dedication, professionalism, and involvement in family law means a lot."
Every year, Super Lawyers selects attorneys like Schultz from all firm sizes and over 70 practice areas throughout the United States. Lawyers enter the candidate pool by being formally nominated by a peer or by the Super Lawyers research department during the research process. Evaluating each lawyer in the candidate pool is based on 12 indicators, plus peer recognition, and professional achievements.
"It's a highly competitive selection process, so when I received word that I was chosen, it humbles you," stated Schultz. "I'm very fortunate to have received this honor and couldn't be prouder."
For the second time, attorney Marc J. Poles is also featured in this year's Super Lawyers' Rising Stars publication. New Jersey attorneys who are either 40 years of age or younger or who have been practicing law for fewer than 10 years are candidates for the highly coveted title. Attorneys are selected through a multi-phase process that includes a statewide nominations process, an independent research evaluation of the candidates, and peer review.
"The fact that only 2.5 percent of New Jersey lawyers are selected for this honor is a testament, I believe, to my work ethic and eagerness to help my clients with their legal matters," stated Poles. "To be featured in the publication inspires me to continue working even harder for my clients' best interest."
Super Lawyers Magazine features the list and profiles of selected attorneys and is distributed to attorneys in the state or region and the ABA-accredited law school libraries. Lawyers are selected to a Super Lawyers list in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.
