Astor Weiss Kaplan & Mandel, LLP, a prestigious law firm, announced today that several of their lawyers in Philadelphia have been honored as Pennsylvania Super Lawyers. Super Lawyer winners are talented individuals that possess a high-level of peer recognition and professional achievement.

According to the Super Lawyers website, “Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.” Once a lawyer is nominated by one of his or her peers, the Super Lawyers selection process is performed for the purpose of creating a clear and diverse resource listing of talented lawyers within each state.

Astor Weiss Kaplan & Mandel, LLP’s Super Lawyers this year include:

In addition to the Supper Lawyers, Jordan Schlossberg was recognized as a Rising Star. Like the Super Lawyers selections process, the Rising Star selection process uses the same patented multiphase process. However, in addition to the Super Lawyers criteria, the eligible candidates for the Rising Star list must also be 40 years old or younger or in legal practice for 10 years or less. Additionally, while only 5% of all lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, only 2.5% are named Rising Stars.
