The Super Lawyers publication recognizes lawyers who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Super Lawyers recognizes no more than 5% of attorneys in each state. Rising Stars are top up-and-coming attorneys in a state who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less, with only 2.5% of attorneys in each state being recognized.
Cowden, Eisenberg, Rice and Sterchi have been selected for inclusion in the publication since it was launched in 2005.
