According to the the Super Lawyers website, “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 patented selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.”
Only 2.5% of Minnesota attorneys are named to the Rising Stars list. Attorneys are eligible for that list if they are forty or younger or have been practicing for ten years or less. The list a “credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel.” (You can learn more about the multiphase selection process, which is based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, here.) Super Lawyers is one of the few attorney rating services which is well-regarded and widely-known by attorneys themselves. Few Greater Minnesota attorneys are named to the list, and David is the only Rochester criminal defense attorney named to either the Super Lawyers or Rising Stars list in 2017.
“It’s very gratifying to be recognized for my past work on behalf of my clients,” David said. “2016 was an exciting year, with an acquittal at trial on a felony case and a Minnesota Supreme Court argument, and I’m looking forward to continuing to represent with passion and skill criminal defendants and others in 2017 and beyond.”
David practices criminal defense, appellate law, and family law throughout southeastern Minnesota.
