At Hager & Schwartz, P.A., we would like to congratulate Attorney John S. Hager and Attorney Brett M. Schwartz on their selection to the 2020 Florida Super Lawyers list. This a tremendous achievement and a distinction bestowed upon only the top 5% of lawyers in the state. Additionally, this is a recognition Attorneys Hager and Schwartz have received for the past 7 years. They were previously selected to the Florida Super Lawyers list from 2014 to 2019.
The Super Lawyers Selection Process
To be chosen to the state’s Super Lawyers list, an attorney must pass through a 4-step process, which begins with nominations. Attorneys put the names of peers they have witnessed in action up for nomination. The Super Lawyers team has measures in place to ensure lawyers don’t nominate themselves or campaign for nominations. Additionally, out-of-firm nominations are given more weight than in-firm ones.
Super Lawyers then conducts independent research on the nominated lawyers.
Attorneys are evaluated on 12 indicators, including:
- Verdicts and settlements
- Honors and awards
- Professional activity
- Other achievements
Each factor is given a different point value, making some worth more than others.
After the research team finalizes its evaluation, the top-scoring attorneys from the first two steps are invited to participate in a “blue ribbon review” panel. They use a 5-point scale to nominate other attorneys in their practice area.
Super Lawyers selects the highest-scoring attorneys in each state for inclusion on the list.
Once again, we are excited for Attorneys Hager and Schwartz and proud of their continued commitment to providing high-quality legal services to our clients.
