GSB Press Release

Garvey Schubert Barer is proud to announce that 24 of our firm’s attorneys have been recognized for inclusion in the 2015 Super Lawyers lists, and nine of our attorneys in the Rising Stars list. Each year, no more five percent of the lawyers in each state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to be included in the Super Lawyers list, and no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state to be included in the Rising Stars list.

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, 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 annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazine and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country. For more information about Super Lawyers, visit
