Let’s face it, attorneys are gluttons for positive attention. Knowing our affection for positive recognition, numerous awards varying in objective legitimacy have been developed to recognize “top” attorneys. As a result, most attorneys are used to receiving numerous award letters throughout the year. Usually these awards require some sort of membership or other fee to be paid before the award is officially conveyed. Consequently, I’ve become quite jaded regarding awards for lawyers and question the legitimacy of most.
Each year, Super Lawyers recognizes the top lawyers in Washington through a patented multi-phase selection process. The process requires attorneys to nominate their peers. In turn, Super Lawyers performs independent research and peer evaluation. According to Super Lawyers, the Washington attorneys who receive the highest point totals during the selection process are further recognized in Washington Super Lawyers Top Lists. Super Lawyers, within the legal community, is one of the more widely accepted and recognized awards conveyed on attorneys.
With that, I am pleased to share that I have been named a 2019 Super Lawyer’s Rising Star in Washington State. I previously received this award in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. After a two-year break, I’m happy to again be recognized as a top workers’ compensation attorney. Thank you to my peers who nominated me. And, thank you to my clients who trust me to assist them as they navigate their L&I work injury and workers comp claims.
