It is with great pleasure that we share that our very own Attorney Rebekah Perlstein has been named to the 2020 Texas Rising Stars list. This is an amazing achievement and an honor bestowed upon only the top 2.5% of lawyers in the state. The entire team at Scott H. Palmer, P.C. congratulates Attorney Perlstein on receiving this distinction and thanks her for her commitment to providing top-quality legal services to those facing criminal charges.
How Are Lawyers Chosen to the Rising Stars List?
To be selected to the Rising Stars list, an attorney must progress through a multi-step process. The first stage involves nominations. Typically, a lawyer is nominated by peers who have seen them in action. Although lawyers can nominate others from their own firms, more weight is given to out-of-firm nominations. Attorneys cannot solicit nor campaign for nominations. During this first step, Super Lawyers also conducts its own research to identify nominees.
In the second step of the process, Super Lawyers rates nominees based on 12 factors. Its research department looks at various indicators such as verdicts and settlements, experience, education, and honors and awards. Not all factors are given the same weight; some are worth more points than others.
The third step of the selection process involves review by a "blue ribbon" panel. The highest-scoring attorneys from the first and second steps are given a list of nominees from within their field of practice to rank on a 5-point scale.
Lastly, the top-scoring lawyers from all previous steps are included for selection on the list. Only attorneys under 40 years of age or who have been in practice for 10 years or less are chosen to the Rising Stars list.
