Since 2004, Arnold & Itkin has been synonymous with accomplishment, results, and securing incredible verdicts and settlements for our clients. Since our firm’s foundation, we have been recognized frequently for our outstanding achievements in the field of personal injury and maritime law. We are proud to say that 2016 will prove to be no different, as our attorneys continue to accomplish incredible work.
This year, five Arnold & Itkin lawyers were selected to the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list:
Who is selected to the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list? Attorneys in each state who have fulfilled the Super Lawyers® requirements, along with 2 more remarkable requirements: candidates are either younger than 40 years old or have been practicing law for less than 10 years. In addition to these even higher standards, the Rising Stars℠ list is limited to the top 2.5% of lawyers in Texas. Having five attorneys at our firm is a rare honor.
What Super Lawyers® Selection Means
The Super Lawyers® is a rating service that grades attorneys according to 12 different criteria that measure the ethics, quality, and contributions to the legal field that their practice provides. These criteria are researched and documented thoroughly for months before a final list of lawyers is determined and published. Lawyers are selected across 70+ practice areas, and the list represents no more than the top 5% of attorneys in each state.
The 12 criteria that nominated attorneys are subjected to include:
- Verdict and settlement results
- Law firm position
- Pro bono and community service
- Scholarly lectures and writing
- Specialized certifications / licenses
- Honors and awards
- Bar association and professional activity
- Representative client history
Why These Results Matter
Since its first publication, Super Lawyers® has been committed to protecting the integrity of its process. That means no attorney is allowed to nominate himself or campaign for inclusion. In fact, nominations that come within the same firm must be matched by nominations in another firm as well—those in charge of the selection process are very careful to monitor nominations to ensure that they are honest and backed by concrete achievements. The nominees are then thoroughly researched and vetted according to the criteria listed above.
As a result, attorneys who are chosen have reason to be proud—their selection is a powerful testament to their skill, their ability, their professional experience, and their personal passion for the law. It’s why we are proud to have so many selected to the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ in our midst at Arnold & Itkin—we are confident our clients are always in good hands, whether they need personal injury lawyers or business litigators.
