The time of the year for Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars selections has finally arrived, and Ashcraft & Gerel is proud to announce that three of our Washington, D.C. legal staffers have been selected for 2021: Attorneys Michelle A. Parfitt, and Drew LaFramboise. This is, however, not the first year in which these attorneys have been recognized by Rising Stars and Super Lawyers®, developed by Thomson Reuters.

About Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars

Often considered one of the top legal rating services, Super Lawyers® is a directory of practicing attorneys from more than 70 practice areas throughout the United States. Its selection process comprises third-party nomination, an independent review of each candidate’s career, a reevaluation before a peer-led Blue Ribbon Panel, and a final quality review. No matter whether an attorney has been listed since the first edition or is up for their very first listing, they must undergo this patented process.

While Thomson Reuters is behind Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars, and candidates for both go through the same selection process, Super Lawyers® is reserved for mid-to-late-career attorneys. On the other hand, Rising Stars only recognizes those who have been in practice for less than 10 years or are no older than 40 years of age. No more than 5% of U.S. attorneys obtain final selection to Super Lawyers® every year, and only 2.5% make the cut for Rising Stars recognition.
