Factors considered and reviewed include background and years of experience in their primary area of law, the number of cases or transactions handled, representative clients, major verdicts, honors and awards, position within the bar, scholarly work, lectures and pro bono activity. Only the top 5% of the licensed attorneys in the state are selected.
