What Are Super Lawyer Awards? 

Super Lawyer awards are given only to a select group of attorneys who are recognized for their professional achievements and peer nomination over the course of the year. Honorees are recognized for their: 

  • Superior service 
  • Work quality 
  • Customer satisfaction 


Each contender is evaluated by 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, which include: 

  • Verdicts/Settlements 
  • Transactions 
  • Representative Clients 
  • Experience 
  • Honors/Awards 
  • Special licenses/certifications 
  • Position within the law firm 
  • Bar and/or professional activity 
  • Pro bono and community service 
  • Scholarly lectures/writings 
  • Education/employment background 
  • Other outstanding achievements 

The Super Lawyers list is shared through the Super Lawyer digital and printed magazine and is featured in select magazines throughout every state. 

Once an attorney receives this prestigious honor, they will be added to the Super Lawyer list for their state and retain this recognition for the year. They can also be found online through the Super Lawyer database. 

What Does it Mean to be a Super Lawyers Rising Star? 

A Super Lawyers Rising Star is someone who does excellent legal work within their practice but has also practiced law for less than a decade or is under 40 years of age. Like the Super Lawyer Recognition, Rising Stars are also selected via peer nomination and evaluations and are well-known for their quality service. No more than five percent of the lawyers in each state are named Super Lawyers, and less than 2.5 percent are honored on the Rising Stars list. 

Bailey’s profile is listed on the Super Lawyers website among the other 2022 Rising Start honorees across the nation. HSAG partner, J. Aaron Atkinson, was also given this honor and went on to earn the Super Lawyer recognition in 2016. 

Congratulations, Bailey, on a job well done! We celebrate your past accomplishments and look forward to your future ones.
