Super Lawyers has named their top lawyers in each state for 2023. BMBFC’s own James Cardea has, once again, been named to the list.
In addition, for the tenth consecutive year, Mr. Cardea has been voted one of the top 100 attorneys in Maryland.
The Award Selection Process
The selection process for the Super Lawyers list is rigorous. Lawyers must receive nominations from their peers without campaigning for selection.
This nomination may come from the managing partner of their law firm, another practicing attorney, or even the research team at Super Lawyers.
Once an attorney receives a nomination, Super Lawyers conducts independent research on the candidate based on 12 indicators of recognition and professional achievement.
This includes recent verdicts and settlements, overall experience, other awards, special certifications, professional activity, and more.
After Super Lawyers concludes its research, it invites the two top-scoring attorneys to the Blue Ribbon Panel. These candidates then evaluate the other candidates within their practice area.
Finally, Super Lawyers awards a representative number of attorneys from small, medium, and large law firms.
Only 5% of all attorneys nominated for Super Lawyers make it onto the final list.
