44 Thompson Coburn attorneys included on Super Lawyers lists for Washington D.C., Southern California and Illinois

June 11, 2018

Another 2018 edition of Super Lawyers has been released, and 44 attorneys have made the publication’s lists.

Congratulations to the attorneys who are Super Lawyers and “Rising Stars” listees. So far in 2018, 34 Thompson Coburn attorneys have been recognized by Super Lawyers; another 9 have been recognized as Super Lawyers “Rising Stars.” Two attorneys, Jessica Gordon and Patrick Morales-Doyle, have been named Rising Stars for the first time.

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters publication, performed the annual polling, research and selection in a patented process designed to identify lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Only 5 percent of the lawyers in a given state or region are included in the Super Lawyers list; 2.5 percent qualify for the “Rising Stars” list.

Those included in Super Lawyers are nominated by their peers, and nominations are supported by independent research, data verification and good-standing review. More information is available at superlawyers.com.

NOTE: the publishing of Super Lawyers is staggered throughout the year across different markets. Missouri Super Lawyers and Rising Stars for 2018 will be announced later this year.
