I’m proud to say that my partners, James C. Lewis and Richard N. Shapiro were voted by peers through the Virgina Super Lawyers personal injury law selection survey as one of the Super Lawyers in the State of Virginia for 2009, per Law & Politics Virginia magazine publication. The selection process for this honor is extensive. Peer nominations, evaluations and third party research measure each candidate on 12 indicators of peer recognition and personal achievement. Three basic steps are involved: creation of the candidate pool, evaluation of candidates by the research department and peer evaluation by practice area.
The goal for the Super Lawyers list is to provide a credible, complete and diverse list of outstanding attorneys which consumers may use when searching for legal counsel. Lewis was selected for personal injury/medical malpractice in 2009 for the fourth straight year, and Shapiro for personal injury/general as of 2009.
Only about 5% or less of all attorneys in the State of Virginia are chosen for this tremendous honor. For more information on what qualifies an attorney to be considered a Super Lawyer,
