Few honors in the legal world are as notable as Super Lawyers® recognition. The rating service highlights outstanding lawyers from over 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Each year, only 5% of lawyers are selected to Super Lawyers® and an even fewer 2.5% of attorneys are named to the publication’s Rising Stars list.
For the past 2 years, our very own Attorney Jessica Murray has been part of this elite 2.5% of lawyers.
Super Lawyers® – The Selection Process
Super Lawyers® considers attorneys throughout a patented multiphase selection process, which includes nominations, independent research, and peer evaluations.
First, attorneys must be nominated by someone other than themselves or identified by Super Lawyers® research team. From there, lawyers are evaluated based on “12 indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition.”
The 12 indicators are made up of an attorney’s verdicts and settlements, representative clients, bar and professional activity, honors and awards, and experience, among other factors. Once an attorney makes it through the independent research phase, they are evaluated by their peers on a “Blue Ribbon Panel.”
If an attorney receives positive peer reviews, they will move on to final selection. In this phase, attorneys are either named to Super Lawyers® or recognized with Rising Stars.
Candidates are eligible for Rising Stars if they are 40 or younger, or have been in practice for 10 years or less.
Super Lawyers® awards appear online, but they are also announced in regional publications. Attorney Murray is designated as a top-rated personal injury attorney in Jackson, MS and appears on page 57 of the Super Lawyers® Mid-South magazine.
She has been included in the publication since she was first designated a Rising Stars honoree in 2018.
