Being recognized as a Super Lawyer is an honor which Dustin Phillips has earned through peer recognition and client satisfaction
Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) July 24, 2013
Super Lawyers has selected Oklahoma criminal defense attorney Dustin Phillips to its list of top-rated attorneys. Mr. Phillips, of the law firm Phillips and Associates in Oklahoma City, adds his Super Lawyers rating to an ever-growing list of recognition and awards.
Super Lawyers is a rating service of distinguished lawyers from a broad spectrum of practice areas. Unlike paid listing services, Super Lawyers selects attorneys for recognition based on a multi-phase selection process that includes peer nomination, independent third-party research, and peer evaluation. Only the top five percent of attorneys in each state are eligible to be listed as Super Lawyers.
Because Super Lawyers values reliability in assessing the most outstanding attorneys, its selection process has been patented, and each step ensures that self-promotion, back-scratching, and gaming the system are eliminated. Peer nominations from attorneys outside of one’s own firm are weighted more heavily than in-firm nominations, and in-firm nominations are not accepted unless there is at least one nomination from outside the nominee’s firm. Furthermore, Super Lawyers tracks the nominations to make sure that lawyers are not making reciprocal nominations: “I’ll nominate you if you nominate me.”
Because of the multi-phase process, third-party research, and checks and balances in place in the Super Lawyers selection process, being listed among Super Lawyers is an accomplishment reserved for the top lawyers. It is not a paid directory service in which any attorney who pays a fee can be listed. It is an honor which Dustin Phillips has earned through peer recognition and client satisfaction.
As a criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Phillips has obtained successful outcomes for countless clients accused of serious crimes. Handling sex crimes, white collar crimes, drug crimes, violent crimes, and other serious state and felony offenses, he is able to achieve dismissals and acquittals based on his skill as a negotiator and trial lawyer.
In addition to his listing among Super Lawyers, Dustin Phillips is recognized by the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers. He is a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the Oklahoma Association for Justice.
