Dallas Divorce Attorney Michelle May O’Neil, of O’Neil & Attorneys, has been chosen for inclusion in the Super Lawyers® list for 2013, marking the third year in a row that she has been selected for this significant professional honor. This three-year achievement is posted on Ms. O’Neil’s Super Lawyers® profile. Being included in this list is a major accomplishment, as it includes no more than 5% of attorneys within each state.
Super Lawyers® uses a rigorous, multi-phase evaluation process in order to select attorneys in each state for its final listings. First, the lawyers are nominated for the list—mostly by other attorneys who are required to have witnessed the candidates’ legal abilities through firsthand observation, according to an explanation of the process by Super Lawyers®. Next, the Super Lawyers® research department assigns each candidate points based on 12 key areas that serve as indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition. These include areas such as verdicts and settlements obtained, experience, special licenses and certifications, etc. Next, the lawyers are scored on a scale of 1 to 10 by a special attorney panel that is designated by Super Lawyers®. The candidates with the highest scores (within their firm size categories) are chosen for the final list. Before publishing, Super Lawyers® take steps to verify that the finalists do not have disciplinary or licensing issues that would prevent them from being honored on the list, the Super Lawyers® website noted.
Attorney O’Neil has been board-certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, placing her among a limited percentage of attorneys within her state who can call themselves family law specialists. In addition to repeatedly being included in the Super Lawyers® list, Attorney O’Neil has also been given a 10.0 Superb rating from Avvo, as well as an AV® Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®.
