We are excited to announce that our founding partner, Attorney Nicholas G. Gounaris, has been selected to the 2019 Super Lawyers® list in the state of Ohio. Super Lawyers® is a reputable third-party attorney rating organization. Inclusion in the Super Lawyers® list is very limited, and only about 5% of attorneys in each state are chosen.
About the Super Lawyers® Selection Process
The Super Lawyers® organization uses a rigorous selection process to identify the most successful and respected attorneys in particular legal fields. The process involves 4 steps. Candidates are not allowed to campaign or solicit nominations.
The 4-step process for selection in the Super Lawyers® list involves:
- Independent research
- Peer evaluation
- Final selection
Candidates may be nominated by peers, third-party feedback, managing partner surveys, or members of the Super Lawyers® research team. Once nominated, candidates will be evaluated on 12 factors. These include verdicts and settlements, bar and professional activity, years of experience, position within the law firm, honors and awards, education and employment background, representative clients, pro bono and community work, transactions, scholarly lectures and writings, special certifications and licenses, and other outstanding achievements.
Only attorneys who display the highest level of professional excellence, client satisfaction, successful case results, and high ethical standards will be considered for the next step in the process – peer evaluation. During this phase, Blue Ribbon Panel members will evaluate the candidates in their primary practice areas. Once the peer-review process is complete, those with the highest number of points will be selected for the final list.
Our founder has been recognized by the Super Lawyers® organization for his extensive experience, unwavering commitment to high ethical standards, and success in the courtroom. He is an aggressive and compassionate attorney who fights for the best interests of his clients. We are proud of his accomplishments and are honored to work alongside such as respected and successful attorney.
