Identified by a research team at Super Lawyers, the attorneys are selected for background, professional experience, achievement, and peer recognition. There is no opportunity to pay for a listing, resulting in a comprehensive register of exceptional attorneys. Only 5% of New England's lawyers are Super Lawyers. Rising Stars are under 40 years of age, or have been practicing law for less than ten years. Less than 2.5% of New England lawyers were named as Rising Stars.
