Our firm is proud to announce that Attorney Richard A. Portale has received the 2018 Super Lawyers® award. This prestigious title is granted to those who display exceptional legal achievements and a commitment to client satisfaction. In fact, only 5% of all attorneys in each state are included in the Super Lawyers® list. We are honored to work alongside such a respected and successful attorney.
About the Patented Super Lawyers® Selection Process
The Super Lawyers® organization provides clients with a list of the most successful and reputable attorneys in individual areas of practice across the nation. Selections are made annually in each state. Candidates must go through a rigorous, 4-step selection process.
This process involves:
- Independent research
- Peer evaluation
- Final selection
Attorneys are strictly prohibited from campaigning for selection in Super Lawyers®. This means they cannot pay for admission, and they cannot promote themselves for selection. Nomination must be done by peers, third-party feedback, a managing partner survey, or by a member of the in-house Super Lawyers® research team.
Once nominated, candidates will be rated on the basis of 12 factors:
- Years of experience
- Settlements or verdicts
- Position within the law firm
- Honors and awards
- Education and employment background
- Special certifications or licenses
- Representative clients
- Scholarly lectures and writings
- Pro bono work and community service
- Bar and professional activity
- Other outstanding achievements
Only candidates who display the highest level of professional achievements, client satisfaction, and successful case results will be considered for the final Super Lawyers® list. Once candidates are rated by independent research, those who receive the highest number of points will proceed to the next step. Members of the Blue Ribbon Panel will evaluate each candidate on a scale of 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest). After peer evaluation, the final selection is made, and only %5 of all attorneys in each state are chosen.
Attorney Richard Portale has been selected to the Super Lawyers® list for his work in the criminal defense field. In each case, he uses tailored legal strategies and thorough preparation as he guides clients through the New York criminal justice system. His unwavering commitment to his clients’ satisfaction, knowledge of state and federal laws, and track record of success make him a fierce legal advocate on behalf of his clients. We congratulate him on this outstanding accomplishment.
