Santa Rosa Criminal Defense Attorney Evan E. Zelig of the Law Offices of Evan E. Zelig, P.C. has been selected to be on the list of Northern California Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ for 2016. This is a monumental achievement that is only awarded to less than 2.5% of all attorneys in the country, and only those who are under 40 years of age or have been in practice for less than 10. Our law firm is always proud of the work Attorney Zelig has accomplished and it is rewarding to know that an organization as prestigious as Super Lawyers® also recognizes his commitment to his craft and clients.
How Are Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ Selected?
Super Lawyers® has earned a reputation in the United States and the United Kingdom as being one of the most trustworthy organizations that locate and recognize attorneys due to its patented multiphase selection process. No lawyers are permitted to campaign or buy their way into the nomination process; only those who are nominated by their peers, clients, and business partners will be considered for independent research.
After Super Lawyers® has gathered ample nominations, the group begins to conduct thorough research on each one of them. Thousands upon thousands of lawyers will be researched each year but no more than 5% of them will be selected in the end.
During the research process, attorneys can earn points based on:
- Successful verdicts and settlements
- Pro bono or community service
- Professional experience
- Honors, awards, and certifications
- Education and scholarly participation
- Other noteworthy achievements or accolades
After the highest ranking lawyers based on their point totals are identified, peer evaluations are used to further assess their expertise. An elite group of Blue Ribbon Panelists is in charge of evaluating other candidates that fall into their primary practice area. At long last, the 2016 entrants are selected.
