CHICAGO, Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Being selected to the annual list of Super Lawyers or the Super Lawyers list of Rising Stars is an accomplishment less than 5% of practicing lawyers in the U.S. achieve, making it one of the most sought after distinctions in the legal profession. While firms across the country are statistically fortunate if they have even one Partner or Associate who makes the final cut, a practice like Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. defies the odds by having every attorney at its firm included in the prestigious attorney-rating publication.
This year, the Chicago-based personal injury law firm of Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. had each of its 14 attorneys named to either the Illinois Super Lawyers list or the Illinois Super Lawyers list of Rising Stars. Both lists recognize legal practitioners considered among the tops in their fields, and are curated using the rigorous, peer-endorsed, and multi-phase selection process which has made Super Lawyers one of the most trusted resources for legal consumers in search of the highest quality representation.
Based on peer nominations, independent research into a dozen criteria of success (from major case results and scholarly contributions to community and professional involvement), and peer-review evaluations, Super Lawyers publishes its annual listings of top attorneys in each state. This includes both its hallmark Super Lawyers list and its list of Rising Stars, which is reserved for attorneys who are 40 years of age or younger, or who have been in practice 10 years or less. Both signify a lawyer's demonstration of the highest standards of professional achievement and ethical conduct, as well as the esteem and respect they've earned from colleagues and fellow legal industry leaders.
As a firm that's no stranger to success, Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. is comprised of national caliber Chicago Trial Attorneys, many of whom have been named to the Super Lawyers and / or Rising Stars lists in previous years.
