St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 13, 2014 -- Law firm Tapella & Eberspacher is excited to announce that one of their attorneys, Lindsay Rakers, has been selected to Super Lawyers’ Missouri & Kansas Rising Stars list for 2014.
The selection process for the award is two-fold. First, the attorney must meet the criteria required for selection to the Super Lawyers list. This involves in-firm and out-of-firm formal and informal nominations, third-party evaluation and research, peer evaluation, and final selection.
To be elected to the Rising Stars list, the candidate must also be either younger than 40 years of age or have been in practice for less than 10 years. Additionally, no more than 2.5% of lawyers in a given state may be elected to the Rising Stars list.
“The firm is very supportive of the awards that our attorneys receive,” said Tapella & Eberspacher business manager Rick Hall. “[Ms. Rakers] was nominated for a similar award last year in Illinois. She is excited to receive the award for Missouri and Kansas this year, and this gives real credibility to the work that our attorneys do.”
Rakers focuses on personal injury cases and is a member of The Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is a group comprised of less than 1% of attorneys in the United States. Additionally, she was recognized as one of the National Trial Lawyers Association Top 100 in September 2014, and is a member of the Missouri and Illinois Bar Associations.
The listing of the 2014 Missouri & Kansas Rising Stars list will appear in Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers Magazine in November 2014, which reaches more than 24,000 attorneys, KC Magazine, in November/December 2014, which reaches over 110,000 readers, and it was already released in the Super Lawyers supplement in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on November 2nd, which reaches over 182,000 readers.
