Rick Mitchell, Super Lawyer in Bankruptcy & Creditor/Debtor Rights and Tax Categories

Rick Mitchell Super Lawyer

Rick Mitchell is recognized by his peers for excellence in the practice areas of Bankruptcy & Creditor/Debtor Rights (80%), Tax (20%). 2012 marks the fifth consecutive year he has been so honored.

Here’s a bit about the SuperLawyers selection criteria

Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a rigorous, multiphase rating process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.

The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public, i.e., lawyers in private practice and Legal Aid attorneys.

The Super Lawyers selection process involves three basic steps: creation of the candidate pool; evaluation of candidates by the research department; and peer evaluation by practice area.

Candidates are grouped into four firm-size categories. Those with the highest point totals from each category are selected. This means solo and small firm lawyers are compared with other solo and small firm attorneys, and large firm lawyers compete with other large firm lawyers.  Five percent of the total lawyers in the state are selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers.
