Seventeen Nilan Johnson Lewis Attorneys Recognized As 2015 Super Lawyers and Rising Stars
Today, we are proud to announce a group of 17 Nilan Johnson Lewis attorneys that have been selected as 2015 Super Lawyers and Rising Stars. This is an increase from the total of 15 that were recognized last year.
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.

The Rising Stars list is developed using the same multiphase selection process used for the Super Lawyers list except for the fact that a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less to be eligible. Also, while up to 5 percent of the lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars.
All attorneys first go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list, but meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements, then go through the Rising Stars selection process.
Congratulations to these outstanding attorneys for earning this distinguished recognition!
