Exciting news for James Wood Law in Albuquerque, New Mexico! Our lead attorney, Mr. James H. Wood himself, has been selected to be a Super Lawyer® for 2016. Although this achievement is impressive all on its own, the news becomes even more noteworthy when you consider that he was also selected for 2014 and 2015.
Only 5% of all attorneys in a state will be selected to Super Lawyers®. An even slimmer percentage will be able to secure the title for three consecutive years in a row. Furthermore, if Mr. James Wood’s history of successful case results are any indication of the future, we believe he shall be able to win this prestigious spot for years to come.
What is a Super Lawyer® Anyway?
In order to be selected as a Super Lawyer®, an attorney must go through a veritable gauntlet conducted by the independent attorney-rating organization Super Lawyers®. It begins with nominations collected from their peers and past clients. Lawyers who have clearly made an impact in their community and legal profession are picked out and thoroughly researched by the organization.
Attorneys will stand out if they show prowess in a variety of topics, including:
- Honors and awards
- Verdicts and settlements
- Community service and pro bono work
- Bar activity
- Scholarly projects
One last peer evaluation is conducted, which is strictly controlled to ensure no one is biased or “gaming the system.” At last, a final selection is made and the Super Lawyers® for the year are notified.
