Clay Dugas has once again been named to the prestigious Texas Super Lawyers® distinguished list in recognition for being a top attorney in the state.
For those who are not familiar with the award, Super Lawyers® is actually a national institution which seeks to honor the best lawyers in each state. They select only those lawyers who have attained the very highest level of peer recognition and professional achievement. In fact various bar associations and courts across the nation have consistently recognized the legitimacy and rigor with which they go through the selection process.
Super Lawyers® actually uses a multiphase rating process and combines peer nomination with independent third party evaluations. Each candidate is carefully evaluated on a set of twelve different indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. The awards are given annually on a state-by-state basis. They select lawyers from more than seventy different practice areas.
To further increase the fairness of the awards candidates are grouped based on firm size and compared to other lawyers of similar firm sizes. This takes place after a very thorough screening and nomination process as well as after considerable research has been done on the candidates. The twelve factors they look at are:
- Verdicts and Settlements
- Position Within the Law Firm
- Representative Clients
- Honors and Awards
- Special Licenses and Certifications
- Pro Bono and Community Service
- Bar and/or Other Professional Activity
- Scholarly Lectures and Writings
- Recognition and Professional Achievement
- Education and Employment Background
