A division of Thomson Reuters, Super Lawyers® is a research-driven, peer influenced rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Other lawyers who have personally observed them in action nominate lawyers to this list. An attorney-led research team who assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria then reviews these credentials. The point totals from a general survey of other lawyers and the research process are then added to arrive at a final tally. Candidates are evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, including verdicts and settlements; honors and awards; special licenses and certifications; pro bono and community service efforts; and scholarly lectures and writings. The ultimate objective of Super Lawyers is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse list of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for other practitioners and consumers searching for legal counsel.
The Pearce Law Firm is one of the few law firms where currently every attorney has been recognized on the Super Lawyers list. You can feel confident in hiring The Pearce Law Firm if you want the highest quality legal representation in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas for your personal injury lawsuit or employment lawsuit.
