Each year, no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in Washington, D.C. are named to Super Lawyers and no more than 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars. A statewide survey of lawyers who have been in practice for at least 5 years leads to the nomination of attorneys personally. Candidates are also added from searches by an attorney-led research staff. The selection process for Rising Stars is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process except that to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for ten years or less and candidates for Rising Stars do not go through peer evaluation by practice area.
