Attorney Middlebrook Selected to 2020 Southern California SuperLawyers List
We are excited to announce that our very own Attorney Richard O. Middlebrook has been selected to the 2020 Southern California SuperLawyers list. This is a tremendous achievement as the accolade is only bestowed upon the top 5% of lawyers in the state. Additionally, Attorney Middlebrook is 1 of only 7 Southern California lawyers chosen to the list and the only not from Los Angeles or Orange County. This is the 6th year he has earned this honor: He was also named to the list in 2012, 2013, 2017, 2018, and 2019.
What Is the Super Lawyers Selection Process?
Being named to the SuperLawyers list is not achieved easily. The process begins with nominations by either peers or an attorney-led research team. Lawyers cannot nominate themselves and cannot solicit nominations from others.
After the nominations are in, an independent research team evaluates the nominees based on 12-factors, which include areas such as verdicts and settlements, experience, honors and awards, and bar/professional activities. Not all categories are given the same weight, and an attorney can receive more points in certain areas.
Once the evaluations are complete, the highest-scoring lawyers are then invited to rate their peers in their practice area on a 5-point scale. The attorneys with the highest points from all steps in the process are then selected for inclusion on the list.
