super lawyers 2016 selections: maggiano, digirolamo, laterra, and lizzi

Super Lawyers 2016 Selections: Maggiano, DiGirolamo, LaTerra, and Lizzi

This year, many lawyers at the firm of Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi have been selected to Super Lawyers of 2016 for their phenomenal work in selected fields of law. Super Lawyers is an extremely prestigious recognition with an involved and tedious selection process where only the best of the best are chosen. The selection process starts with nominations where peers are permitted to enter the name of the lawyer they have deemed most worthy. A research process helps staff search for the best lawyers based on certain honors, peer recognition, and professional competence.

After this, the research department will evaluate lawyers based on 12 indicators of peer recognition including verdicts and settlements, transactions, representative clients, honors and awards, and more. Peer evaluation is then given based on a scale ranging one to five.

At the end of the process, a final selection is made based on the highest point totals from each category. This means that many lawyers are compared against one another to arrive at the best of the best.

Furthermore, there is a separate process known as the Rising Stars, which gives caring and outstanding recognition to those who are still rising the ranks as an attorney. To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must meet the requirements of being either 40 years old or younger or in the practice for 10 years or less. They first go through the Super Lawyers selection process and, if they are not chosen, they will be sent to the Rising Stars selection process if requirements are met. Up to 5% of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers and no more than 2.5% are named to the Rising Stars list, showing you just what an honor it is to be named.
