(KWGD) is pleased to announce that Law & Politics Magazine has named 16 attorneys to the 2013 Ohio Super Lawyers® list and 5 attorneys have been named to the list of Ohio Rising Stars. The Super Lawyers list comprises only the top five percent of the lawyers in Ohio. The list is based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Rising Stars are selected by their peers as the up-and-coming attorneys who are under 40 or who have been practicing for 10 years or less in their respective practice areas. These nominations are then verified by the attorney-led research staff at Law & Politics. No more than 2.5 percent of the state’s lawyers are named to the Rising Stars list.
