Super Lawyers is a rating service that identifies outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas. The selection process involves a combination of peer nominations, evaluations, and independent research. Candidates are evaluated based on factors such as professional achievement, peer recognition, and other criteria specific to their practice areas.


The Super Lawyers list is published annually and is designed to provide a credible resource for individuals seeking legal representation. It is intended to showcase exceptional attorneys who have demonstrated a high level of professional achievement and peer recognition. Super Lawyers also publishes a separate Rising Stars list, which recognizes up-and-coming attorneys who are 40 years old or younger or who have been in practice for 10 years or less.


Being named to the Louisiana Super Lawyers list can be considered a significant accomplishment for attorneys. Inclusion in the Super Lawyers list is often viewed as a recognition of a lawyer's professional achievements, reputation, and expertise within their practice area. It signifies that the attorney has been identified through a rigorous selection process that involves peer nominations, evaluations, and independent research.
