At Edgar Snyder & Associates, we are proud to announce that many of our attorneys have been selected for inclusion in Pennsylvania Rising Stars by Super Lawyers®. This is an honor awarded to the best up-and-coming attorneys who are 40 or under or who have been practicing for 10 years or less.
Being named to Rising Stars is special, because lawyers are nominated by other lawyers who have seen them in action.
The following attorneys have been selected as Pennsylvania Rising Stars:
Note: Rising Stars was not published in 2009.
Super Lawyers created Rising Stars in 1988 to recognize young and new talent in the legal field. Rising Stars first recognized attorneys in Minnesota and can now be found in many states across the U.S.
Being listed in Rising Star is not easy. Once a lawyer is nominated, an attorney-led research team reviews his or her credentials and assigns points based on a set of criteria. The team checks that the lawyer is in good standing with the state licensing agency and that he or she has no history of disciplinary action that would remove him or her from the list.
The points given based on the criteria are then combined for a point total. The research team also considers firm size, practice area, and location when making the final decision. The top 2.5% of the nominees in each state with the highest number of points is named to Rising Stars' list.
