New Jersey Super Lawyers and Rising Stars Ranks 33 Archer Attorneys

Archer had 33 attorneys featured in New Jersey Super Lawyers and Rising Stars, with 22 on the 2015 Super Lawyers and 11 on the Rising Stars list.

The publishers of Super Lawyers magazine designate “Super Lawyers” and “Rising Stars” based on a point-scored selection process, with New Jersey results released each spring. The Super Lawyers selection process involves nomination by colleagues, research by Super Lawyers staff, and peer evaluation by top attorneys in each of more than 70 practice areas. The final published list represents no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state.

The selection process for Rising Stars is similar, with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. No more than 2½ percent of lawyers in a state are selected for the Rising Stars designation.
