At Jansen and Davis, P.A., we are beyond thrilled to announce that Attorney R. Timothy Jansen has been selected to the 2021 Florida Super Lawyers list. Receiving this honor is significant as an attorney must go through a rigorous selection process, and only 5% of lawyers in each state are chosen for the designation. We are incredibly proud of Attorney Jansen and his most recent accomplishment, as well as his commitment to deliver exceptional legal representation for those facing criminal charges.
How Is an Attorney Selected to the Super Lawyers List?
Super Lawyers employs a multiphase approach to identify and recognize attorneys who have shown outstanding professional achievement and have garnered substantial peer recognition.
The four-step selection process progresses as follows:
- Nominations: To be considered for inclusion on the list, lawyers must first be nominated by peers who have seen them in action. Super Lawyers has safeguards in place to ensure this stage is fair. For example, attorneys cannot campaign for nominations. The organization also conducts its own research and allows informal nominations to identify lawyers to include in the candidate pool.
- Independent research: Once Super Lawyers has a list of nominees, it assesses each on their achievements and recognitions based on 12 factors, including verdicts/settlements, experience, honors/awards, and community service. Each indicator has a point value, with some having more weight than others.
- Blue Ribbon Review: Attorneys with the highest scores from the first two steps are invited to serve on a “blue ribbon panel.” They evaluate other lawyers within their practice area on a five-point scale.
- Selection: The lawyers with the highest ratings in the previous 3 steps are then selected for inclusion on the Super Lawyers list. Again, only 5% of attorneys in each state are awarded the distinction.
We recognize that being chosen to the Super Lawyers list is no easy feat, which is why we are honored and excited that Attorney Jansen has been selected this year. We offer our sincerest congratulations for his accomplishment.
