Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The result is an objective, comprehensive listing of the top lawyers in each state.
The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.
Every year, no more than 5% of the lawyers in each state are named Super Lawyers, and no more than 2.5% are named Rising Stars.
In 2022, L&M partner Matthew Smith was named a Super Lawyer for the first time, after being named a Rising Star each year from 2015–2020. Lead senior associate Andrew Tank was named a Super Lawyer for the second consecutive year, after being named a Rising Star each year from 2015–2020.
The following attorneys at Livesay & Myers, P.C. were also named 2022 Rising Stars:
- Ariel Baniowski
- Jonathan McHugh
- Jamel Rowe
- Amanda Kimble
- Brianna Salerno
- Sarah Patras
- Emily Neuhausen
Congratulations to these L&M attorneys on this recognition of their outstanding abilities!
