We are proud to announce that all three of our firm's partners at Samuelson, Hause & Samuelson, LLP have been included in the 2013 list of Super Lawyers®. Each year, Super Lawyers® Magazine recognizes outstanding attorneys who have received the highest ratings after they are reviewed by their professional peers and by the Super Lawyers® research department. Only up to 5% of lawyers in each state are included in this well-respected listing each year.
This is not the first year that our attorneys have been recognized by Super Lawyers® Magazine. Attorneys Elliot D. Samuelson and Richard L. Hause have been selected for inclusion in the list each year from 2007 through 2013. Attorney Wendy B. Samuelson has been selected from 2008 through 2010 and again this year in 2013. This shows that our Long Island divorce lawyers have demonstrated again and again that they are considered exceptional legal practitioners within the field of Family Law.
The honorees for the Super Lawyers® list are chosen through a multi-phase, patented selection process. According to the Super Lawyers® website, the process is kicked off by nominations from other attorneys who have witnessed the nominees in action. Strong candidates are also identified by the research team. Those who are up for review are then evaluated in 12 key areas that are meant to reflect each lawyer's level of professional achievement and his or her level of professional recognition. In the next step, the candidates undergo a peer-review process in which they are rated on a scale of one to ten by other accomplished lawyers who work in the same practice areas. The points from these two types of evaluations are used to determine the finalists for the list (with certain factors such as firm size being taken into consideration). Those who are chosen for the list are fully vetted to ensure that they are not subject to disciplinary action or licensing issues.
Our attorneys at Samuelson, Hause & Samuelson, LLP have more than a century of combined legal experience. In addition to being included in the Super Lawyers® list year after year, some of these legal professionals have also been named in The Best Lawyers in America listing, and the firm has been named a "Tier 1 Family Law Firm" by U.S. News & World Report. These are just a few of the many professional honors we have received.
