Multiple Berry Law Attorneys Recognized by Super Lawyers
Super Lawyers recently recognized Berry Law attorneys John S. Berry, Jr., and Justin Kalemkiarian with their exclusive annual eponymous designation. This marks the third consecutive year that Berry Law has had attorneys receive the prestigious accolade, with Berry named to the 2019 Great Plains Super Lawyers list and Kalemkiarian lauded as a 2019 Great Plains Rising Star.
Super Lawyers grants their title to attorneys who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement, using their own patented multiphase selection process to narrow down their list of nominees. They rely on a 4-step process to evaluate and select recipients. The selection process is broken down into 4 distinct categories:
- Nominations – Nominations are done through surveys, direct nominations by peers, third party feedback, and analysis of the competitive landscape by the Super Lawyers research team. Lawyers are not allowed to nominate themselves.
- Independent Research – After creating a list of nominees, the Super Lawyers staff conducts independent research and ranks nominees using a proprietary point structure.
- Peer Evaluation – A blue ribbon panel is created from candidates with the highest point totals from the first two steps. This panel then evaluates other candidates within their practice areas and ranks them.
- Final Selection – A final list of attorneys is selected to include representatives from small, medium, and large firms.
Of the attorneys nominated, only 5% are selected as a Super Lawyer and an even smaller portion, 2.5% of those 40 and younger, are selected as a Rising Star.
