Rogers Towers recently announced that 11 of the law firm’s attorneys were named to the 2018 Florida Super Lawyers list and an additional six were named to the 2018 Florida Super Lawyers – Rising Stars list.
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. To compile the lists, Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers and an independent research evaluation of candidates on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The final published list represents no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state.
The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less. While up to 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.
