2021 Super Lawyers® Lists Attorney Irwin M. Zalkin for Personal Injury Law

The Zalkin Law Firm is proud to announce that Attorney Irwin M. Zalkin, our founding partner, has been selected for inclusion in the 2021 edition of Super Lawyers® in the category of Personal Injury - General: Plaintiff for San Diego, California!

What Is Super Lawyers®?

Super Lawyers® is a legal ranking publication that is curated on an annual basis to serve as an accurate, vetted directory of attorneys. A Thomson Reuters company, its extensive database showcases premier legal professionals from more than 70 legal practice areas in various regions of the United States. Each listee is either nominated by a third party or identified by the Super Lawyers® Research Team — listees are prohibited from soliciting nominations.

How Does Super Lawyers® Select Listees?

After being nominated or identified by the attorney-led research team, each candidate in the running for a Super Lawyers® listing is put through a rigorous review process to determine whether their careers thus far live up to the publication’s standards. Through independent research, they are examined on “12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement”:

  • Settlements and verdicts
  • Representative clients
  • Honors and awards
  • Pro bono services
  • Law firm position
  • Bar activity
  • Background
  • Experience
  • Transactions
  • Scholarly contributions
  • Licenses and certifications
  • Other relevant achievements

Next, candidates move on to being evaluated by a Blue Ribbon Panel composed of the Super Lawyers® candidates who have scored the highest in the multi-phase selection process thus far. Those who score the best in this step effectively pass final selection, which is made on a state/regional basis. Overall, no more than 5% of the nation’s practicing attorneys are selected for inclusion each year.
