Kenneth Fenelon was selected to Super Lawyer’s Rising Stars in 2017. Super Lawyers, a Thompson Reuters organization, selects attorneys from all firm sizes all over the United States who have attained honors, credentials, and case results which indicate a high degree of professional competence. Our attorneys were nominated by their peers. Once nominated, our attorneys’ track records and reputations were reviewed by an independent committee.
Super Lawyers is an impartial and independent organization that makes all of its selections based on research, peer nominations, and peer evaluations. Their research department evaluates each nominee based on a dozen factors of professional achievement, including:
- verdicts and settlements
- honors and awards
- special licenses
- community service
- other outstanding achievements.
Selection process for Super Lawyers is patented for its impartiality
A Super Lawyers recognition cannot be bought, unlike some other awards. Their independent selection process has been patented since 2013 because of its impartiality. When the selection process was challenged in court in 2008, the New Jersey Supreme Court concluded that it is a “comprehensive, good-faith, and detailed attempt to produce a list of lawyers [who] have attained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have demonstrated some degree of achievement in their field… It is absolutely clear from this record that [Super Lawyers does] not permit a lawyer to buy one’s way onto the list.”
This is Brian’s 10th year to be selected by Super Lawyers and Curtis’s 5th year to be selected by Super Lawyers. Learn more about some of the other honors and awards our personal injury attorneys have earned.
