It is estimated that only five percent of attorneys in the State of California qualify each year to be named "Super Lawyers".
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
Los Angeles accident and injury attorney, Steven M. Sweat, was named a "Super Lawyer" in the category of "Personal Injury - Plaintiffs" for 2015. This award is given jointly by Thomson Reuters News Service and Los Angeles Magazine. The stated criteria for the award is as follows:
"The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public, i.e., lawyers in private practice."
The selection process involves a now patented multi-phase process of peer nominations (from other attorneys and persons in the legal field) and independent research conducted by Thomson Rueters to verify the credentials of the lawyers. It is estimated that only five percent of attorneys in the State of California qualify each year to be named "Super Lawyers".
Steven M. Sweat, is a founding partner of Glotzer & Sweat, LLP, a law firm based in Los Angeles that represents persons throughout California. The practice has a focus of representing accident victims and the families of wrongful death survivors in catastrophic bodily harm and death cases related to negligence or wrongdoing. The firm has obtained millions of dollars in recovery for incidents ranging from traffic collisions to injuries on commercial or residential property.
In addition to being named a "Super Lawyer", Mr. Sweat has also been recognized by various other organizations as having demonstrated outstanding legal representation of consumers in injury and accident-related claims including the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys, and being rated a perfect 10.0 ("Superb") by the AVVO Attorney Rating Service.
