San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Attorneys across the nation strive to prove themselves worthy of respect and recognition in their fields. One of the ways in which a lawyer can be recognized and honored for their excellence is by inclusion in the list of Super Lawyers®.
As one of the most trusted attorney rating services in the nation, Super Lawyers requires an attorney to be nominated by their peers and to pass rigorous evaluations before being selected for inclusion in their regional Super Lawyers Magazine. Attorney Kerry L. Armstrong – founding attorney of the Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC – has recently been selected for inclusion in the 2014 list of Southern California Super Lawyers®.
The Super Lawyers Selection Process
Selection into Super Lawyers involves a detailed process. The first step is the selection process, which involves formal nominations, informal nominations, and research into the attorney’s credentials. These credentials include everything from peer recognition to bar admissions and specialty certifications.
The second step in the process is evaluation by the Super Lawyers research department, where the nominee is evaluated based on 12 indicators. These indicators include everything from verdicts and settlements to honors, awards, education, and employment background.
The third step in the process is peer evaluation or the “blue ribbon review.” All candidates are grouped according to their primary area of practice. Those with the highest points serve on a blue ribbon panel and review candidates from their own practice areas on a scale of one to ten.
The last step in the process is the final selection. Candidates are grouped according to their firm size and those candidates with the highest points in their categories are selected for inclusion in that year’s list of Super Lawyers.
The Significance of Inclusion in Super Lawyers
Attorney Kerry L. Armstrong has passed each of these steps to be selected into the 2014 list of Southern California Super Lawyers. Only as many as 5% of the nation’s practicing attorneys are selected into the Super Lawyers lists, making Attorney Armstrong a member of a prestigious group of qualified lawyers.
Los Angeles Magazine has also honored Attorney Armstrong by selecting him for inclusion in their 2014 list of Top Attorneys in Southern California. This means that Armstrong has won two awards for the year 2014 as an outstanding San Diego criminal defense lawyer.
