Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
Okabe & Haushalter is proud to announce Attorney Mark Haushalter’s inclusion as a 2012 California Rising Star℠ by Super Lawyers®. Attorney Haushalter was included in this prestigious list of legal professionals in 2010 and 2011, and is honored to be selected for the third year in a row for his commitment to his clients and his successes in the courtroom.
Super Lawyers® is recognized as one of the nation’s top rating services, and annually selects attorneys who have achieved notable successes in their areas of practice and received a high level of recognition from their peers. This esteemed organization puts each candidate through a rigorous selection process that involves numerous phases of independent research, peer nomination, and peer evaluation.
Each candidate is evaluated on twelve different indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, and only the top attorneys of each state are selected for inclusion in this annual list. As a California Rising Star℠, Attorney Haushalter underwent further evaluation; inclusion in the Rising Stars℠ list is awarded to attorneys who are 40 or under or attorneys who have been practicing for 10 years or less.
The candidates are nominated by their peers, and in addition to undergoing the general Super Lawyers® survey, their credentials are evaluated by an attorney-led research team that assigns points based on a defined set of criteria. The researchers also verify that the nominees are properly licensed and in good standing with their licensing boards, and if possible, the team also assesses whether the nominees have any past disciplinary actions against them that would disqualify them from inclusion.
At the end of the process, the points are tallied and the nominated attorneys are ranked by their point totals. The lawyers with the highest totals are named to the list of Rising Stars, an honor given to no more than 2.5% of attorneys in the state.
