The Zalkin Law Firm is celebrating another year of Super Lawyers® acclaim for Attorney Irwin M. Zalkin, the founding partner of our national trial law firm. In the 2022 edition, he was listed for his effective advocacy in San Diego, California for the area of “Personal Injury - General: Plaintiff.”
A Thomson Reuters company, Super Lawyers® is known across the nation for its trusted legal guides. In choosing listed lawyers, it requires each and every candidate to undergo a multiphase review process. To many, this process is regarded as a highly competitive, all-encompassing performance review, comprising:
- Nomination by a third party: Attorneys cannot nominate themselves for Super Lawyers® consideration but must be nominated by their peers, clients, or another third party.
- Independent research: In this independent review, the Super Lawyers® research team attempts to get a comprehensive understanding of each candidate’s career by evaluating them on 12 categories of professional achievement. This includes case results, representative clients, and other awards and accolades.
- Peer review: Also known as the Blue Ribbon Review, the peer review is carried out by top-rated attorneys from over 70 practice areas. These Blue Ribbon panelists reevaluate all candidates in their own areas of practice to ensure the accuracy of and build upon the results of the previous step.
This rigorous review results in a vetted guide of attorneys that people across the country can turn to when searching for representation. It is a huge honor to be listed in any edition of Super Lawyers®–each year, only 5% of the nation’s attorneys earn this honor.
