WESTPORT, Conn., Oct. 18, 2016 — Randi Nelson, an associate attorney at Nusbaum & Parrino P.C. of Westport, has been selected as a 2016 Connecticut Rising Star by Super Lawyers.
“This is an honor reserved for those lawyers who exhibit excellence in practice,” according to Ron Cahill, director of research and editorial at Super Lawyers. The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less. This is the second year Super Lawyers has selected Nelson as a Connecticut Rising Star.
All attorneys considered for inclusion in Rising Stars are evaluated by the Super Lawyers selection process. A representative number of small, medium and large firm attorneys make the final selection. While up to five percent of attorneys in the state are named to Super Lawyers, only 2.5 percent of attorneys in Connecticut receive a Rising Star distinction.
Super Lawyers, part of Thomson Reuters, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
Super Lawyers magazine features the list and profiles of selected attorneys, and is distributed to attorneys in the state or region and ABA-accredited law school libraries. Super Lawyers is also published as a special section in leading city and regional magazines across the country.
