Super Lawyers, a Thomson-Reuters publication, annually uses a thorough 12-point selection process to identify the top lawyers in Texas. The designation marks the third consecutive time Attorney Mullen has won this award.
Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/11/2015 -- Local personal injury attorney Shane V. Mullen was recently named a 2016 "Super Lawyers Rising Star" by Super Lawyers Magazine, a Thomson-Reuters publication. The honor is reserved for the top 2.5% of all lawyers in Texas under the age of 40, or with less than 10 years of practice experience.
"It truly is a privilege to be a Super Lawyer Rising Star for the third year in a row," said Attorney Mullen. "Clients are going through one of the most stressful times in their lives when they come to me. I do everything possible to hold their hand and walk them through the intimidating legal process. The goal is that they get a better legal outcome than anywhere else, pay minimal legal fees, and that they feel personally cared for too. Our firm even connects injury victims with doctors and hospitals who delay billing until their case resolves so they don't have to worry about medical bills, debt collectors, or bankruptcy," he added.
The Super Lawyers Rising Stars list has likely the most rigorous selection process of any award available to personal injury lawyers. Lawyers cannot pay a fee or do favors for friends to make the list.
Instead, Super Lawyers has skilled analysts who check 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Some of the categories include Verdicts and Settlements, Other Honors and Awards, Special Licenses and Certifications, and Other Outstanding Achievements.
The nomination process includes several checks to ensure the system cannot be gamed. While lawyers can nominate other lawyers, who does the nominating is tracked. It eliminates the possibility of friends nominating each other. It also stops block nominations, where all lawyers in a firm could nominate one lawyer. Finally, it stops lawyers from campaigning to nominate other lawyers. The attorney-led research staff's goal is to create a credible and objective list of the most outstanding attorneys in Texas for consumers and other attorneys looking for legal counsel.
Injury victims who want an honest, high-integrity lawyer that speaks in plain English, and one of the very best in Texas, should call personal injury attorney Shane Mullen at 800-371-8751 for a free consultation.
