For the 2nd year in a row, one of this firm’s own has earned one of the most significant ratings an attorney can receive. Lauren Wood, a partner of The Schurmer Firm, has been named a Southern California Super Lawyers Rising Star. Super Lawyers is a rating service dedicated to providing people with access to peer-reviewed and high-achieving attorneys. The selection process for this recognition is also extremely stringent.
It begins with a nomination, which must come from a managing partner, peer, third party, or the Super Lawyers research team. Ms. Wood could neither nominate herself nor campaign for the honor. The Super Lawyers team then evaluate each candidate on 12 indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition, including some of the following:
- Position within a law firm
- Bar activity
- Pro bono and community service
- Education/employment background
Other candidates with the highest point totals from the first two steps then serve on a Blue Ribbon Panel that evaluates their other peers. A representative number of small, medium and large firm lawyers are then selected. Only 2.5% of all attorneys who have gone through this entire process are selected to be rising stars. Through her continuing achievements, Ms. Wood has demonstrated her commitment to her work in civil litigation and to the larger community.
