Eight Gordon & Rees Attorneys Named 2012 Colorado Super Lawyers® or Rising Stars®

July 2012

Congratulations to the Denver office attorneys featured below who have been named Super Lawyers® or Rising Stars® for 2012! The attorneys' information was published in the April issues of 5280 Magazine, which has a readership of 323,600, and Colorado Super Lawyers magazine, which is mailed to Colorado attorneys, the lead corporate counsel of the Russell 3000 companies and all ABA-approved law schools.

The selection of Super Lawyers® is a result of independent research to determine the top five percent of legal professionals in Colorado. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement – verdicts and settlements, transactions, representative clients, experience, honors and awards, special licenses and certifications, position within the law firm, bar and other professional activity, pro bono and community service as a lawyer, scholarly lectures and writings, education and employment background, and other outstanding achievements.

To determine the candidates for Rising Stars®, practicing lawyers are asked to nominate "the best attorneys who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less." The publication's attorney-led research team independently reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in a state are named to the Rising Stars® list.

Denver co-managing partners John Palmeri and Thomas Quinn were also selected to the Super Lawyers "Top 100" list in all practice areas. Gordon & Rees congratulates Mr. Palmeri, Mr. Quinn and the following Denver attorneys.
