Three Lawyers from the Sanders Firm Selected as Super Lawyers, 2012
The Sanders Law Firm, one of the largest personal injury firms in New York, recently announced that the prestigious Super Lawyers rating service selected three of its lawyers as outstanding for 2012. This means that these professionals were among the top five percent of lawyers in the state to achieve this honor. Senior Partner Mark Grossman, Senior Partner Martin Block, and Senior Counsel Edward J. Nitkewicz were all recognized for their high level of achievement in their practice areas.
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
The process of selecting Super Lawyers
According to the Super Lawyers website, the objective of their selection process is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. The process involves three steps: the creation of a candidate pool, the evaluation of candidates by the research department, and the peer evaluation by practice area.
The attorney-led research staff searches for lawyers who have attained certain honors, results or credentials that indicate a high degree of peer recognition or professional competence. The research department then evaluates each candidate based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. The final published list represents no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state.
Recognition of each New York personal injury lawyer
This is the third year Senior Partner Marc Grossman has been selected as a Super Lawyer, recognized for his achievement in representing plaintiffs in pharmaceutical and defective medical device litigation. It is the seventh year for Senior Partner Martin Blog, a New York personal injury lawyer who was recognized for his representation of plaintiffs in all personal injury matters.
Senior Counsel Edward J. Nitkewicz was newly recognized, also as a New York personal injury lawyer, for his work representing personal injury plaintiffs in matters of general negligence, product liability and no-fault litigation. Super Lawyers noted particularly his work as a leader in the field of education law.
