Being selected to the list of Pennsylvania Super Lawyers is an honored distinction awarded to only the top 5% of lawyers in Pennsylvania. All of the partners at Edgar Snyder & Associates have been included on the list of Pennsylvania Super Lawyers for several years, and many have been named one of the Top 100 Attorneys in Pennsylvania, the Top 50 Attorneys in Pittsburgh, and the Top 50 Female Attorneys in Pennsylvania.

Making the list of Pennsylvania Super Lawyers is no easy task. The rigorous process involves four detailed stages of selection. That's why our injury law firm is honored to be the home of many accomplished attorneys that have been listed in Pennsylvania Super Lawyers over the years.
During Super Lawyers' selection process, specific distinctions are awarded to attorneys who stand out as the best among their peers. The following Edgar Snyder & Associates attorneys have received additional honors from Super Lawyers:
The four stages involved in selection to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers list:
The General Survey begins with tens of thousands of ballots being distributed to attorneys across Pennsylvania, who vote for the best Pennsylvania lawyers they have "seen in action."
Rigorous standards are applied to the ballots review process. Any "back-scratch" votes, which occur when lawyers agree to vote for each other, eliminate a lawyer from the list.
The Screening Process involves the review of Pennsylvania lawyer credentials by the Super Lawyers research staff. Attorneys are scored based upon defined evaluation criteria.
At this time, lawyers are also reviewed to make sure that they are properly licensed in Pennsylvania, in good standing with the Bar, and have no history of disciplinary actions.
Nominated lawyers are divided into different practice areas, and a Blue Ribbon Panel is assembled for each of the practice areas. The panel consists of the top point-getters from previous rounds of selection.
These Blue Ribbon Panels review the list of nominated Pennsylvania lawyers within their own areas of practice. Positive or negative point totals are then assigned for each nominated lawyer.
Adding all scores from the first three rounds, Final Selection assigns a final score for each nominated attorney. Nominated PA lawyers are divided according to the size of their law firm – small, medium and large.
The top lawyers within each size category are then named to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers list for the year in focus. Those chosen consist of the top 5% of the attorneys in Pennsylvania, the best in the state.
