Michael D. Mayfield and Jonathan G. Pappasideris were also chosen as Rising Stars. Rising Stars names the state’s top up-and-coming attorneys who are 40 years old and younger or who have been in practice ten years or less. Only 2.5% of lawyers per jurisdiction make up the Rising Stars list.

The selections for Super Lawyers are made by Law & Politics, a division of Key Professional Media, Inc. of Minneapolis, Minn. Each year, Law & Politics undertakes a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by Law & Politics’ attorney-led research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check. Only five percent of the lawyers in the state are named by Super Lawyers.
