Every year, the Super Lawyers organization selects the top attorneys from firms of all sizes and practice areas throughout the United States. Attorneys formally enter the candidate pool by being nominated by a peer or identified by the organization during the research process. The rating service then publishes its findings online and in their yearly Super Lawyers Magazine, which is distributed to attorneys and ABA-accredited law school libraries across the country.
Scott Perlmuter was selected as a Super Lawyers award winner for 2020. The 2020 awards is Perlmuter’s second time on this particular Super Lawyers list after also being recognized in 2019. Perlmuter was also featured for six consecutive years on the “Rising Stars” list from 2012 – 2017.
Allen Tittle and Chance Douglas are Rising Stars honorees for the year. To be eligible for the Rising Stars awards, an attorney must be 40 years old or younger or have been practicing law for 10 years or less. While the Rising Stars list represents the top 5% of attorneys in the country, less than 2.5% of all lawyers make it to the Rising Stars list.
Both Allen Tittle and Chance Douglas are multiple Rising Stars award winners. Tittle and Douglas have both been selected as “Rising Stars” for 5 consecutive years from 2015-2019, in addition to their newest 2020 recognition.
Super Lawyers selects only the top 5% of attorneys in the country by using a multiphase selection process. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators including verdicts/settlements, experience, honors/awards, scholarly lectures, published writings, and more.
