Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
Bartholomew & Wasznicky LLP is proud to announce that Diane Wasznicky, Hal Bartholomew & Mary Molinaro have once again been named to the Northern California Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in Northern California for 2012. All have been named to the list every year since recognition began in 2004.
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis & 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.
The Super Lawyers selection process involved three basic steps: creation of the candidate pool; evaluation of candidates by the research department; and peer evaluation by practice area. Lawyers enter the candidate pool by being formally nominated by a peer or if identified by the research department. The research department then evaluates each candidate based on the following indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement: verdicts and settlements; transactions; representative clients; experience; honors and awards; special licenses and certifications; position within law firm; bar and/or other professional activity; pro bono and community service as a lawyer; scholarly lectures and writings; education; and other outstanding achievements.
The candidates are then grouped according to their primary areas of practice & then ranked by a “blue ribbon panel.” The final published list represents no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state. The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers magazines and in leading city and regional magazines, including the August 2012 issues of Sacramento Magazine and San Francisco Magazine.
With a combination of over 125 years in the legal field, Bartholomew & Wasznicky LLP is the Sacramento region’s largest family law firm and focuses expertise in the areas of legal and tax aspects of divorce, mediation services, collaborative negotiation, and child support and custody issues. The firm is located at 4740 Folsom Boulevard in Sacramento. For more information, please visit their website at http://www.DivorceWithRespect.com.
