How Does an Attorney Get Recognized by the Lawyers of Distinction?

Each year, Lawyers of Distinction updates its database so it only reflects the most current attorneys of note. To become a member, a lawyer must undergo a rigorous and objective selection process patented by the organization. The process is as follows.
First, a practicing attorney must be nominated for consideration, either by one of their peers or by the Lawyers of Distinction selection committee.
Second, each nominee is independently researched by the selection committee. The committee analyzes each candidate’s experience and abilities based on select criteria.
This criterion includes an attorney’s:
- Case results
- Educational background
- Honors and awards
- Lectures, writings, and publications
- Legal experience
- Online reviews
- Pro bono and community services
- Verdicts and settlements
Third, candidates who pass the second stage undergo an ethics review and background check. To be eligible, a nominee must have had no ethical violations on record within the last ten years.
Finally, lawyers who achieve a passing score and have no ethics violations are listed on the website and recognized among the year’s Lawyers of Distinction. To learn more, visit their website here.
