At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., we are excited to announce that both attorneys Jason D. Cohn and Saar Swartzon have been selected for inclusion in the 2014 list of Rising Stars℠.
Super Lawyers® is one of the most respected attorney rating services that rates lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Lawyers® selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process which combines peer nominations and evaluations with third party research.
Each candidate is carefully evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Lawyers® makes their selections on an annual, state-by-state basis. The ultimate objective is to produce a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a reliable resource for consumers searching for quality legal counsel.
The attorney-led research staff searches for attorneys who have attained specific honors, awards and certifications in their career, all of which are direct indicators of peer recognition or professional competence; for example, entry into prestigious colleges or certification in a specialized field of law.
The research staff identifies lawyers on 12 indicators of peer recognition, including but not limited to: verdicts and settlements, transactions, awards, experience, honors, scholarly lectures and writings, special licenses and certifications, pro bono and community service as a lawyer and other indicators of outstanding achievement.
While up to 5% of attorneys in the state are included in the annual selection of Super Lawyers®, not more than 2.5% of lawyers are included in the selection of Rising Stars℠. Congratulations to both Jason D. Cohn and Saar Swartzon for landing on the list of California’s 2014 Rising Stars℠!
