What is involved in the Super Lawyers selection process?
Each year, Super Lawyers releases a list of highly qualified attorneys from firms and practice areas throughout the United States and London. Being named to this list, however, is not easy, and each candidate is subjected to rigorous research and evaluations.
The first phase of the selection process involves the actual creation of the candidate pool. Lawyers are nominated by a peer or may enter the candidate pool during the research process if they are acknowledged by the research department. The more nominations a lawyer receives, the more points are included in their overall score.
The second phase is perhaps the most intense. Each candidate is evaluated based on 12 different indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. These indicators also have point values and include all of the following:
- Position within law firm
- Pro bono and community service
- Special licenses/certifications
After being evaluated by their peers, the final list of Super Lawyers is compiled. It is clear, based on his experience and successes, that Attorney Blecher is more than qualified for this immense honor. He has been practicingcriminal defense for
over 30 years and is a member of numerous well-respected organizations.
Attorney Blecher devotes much of his practice to handling DUI cases, having defended 3,000 cases within this practice area alone.
