We are excited to announce that two of our attorneys were recently honored by Super Lawyers®: Erlene Krigel and Lara Pabst Krigel (a Rising Star).
Super Lawyers is a rating service of top-tier lawyers designed as an aid for consumers selecting a lawyer.
The Super Lawyers patented selection process includes three steps:
1. Creation of the candidate pool
2. Evaluation of candidates by third party research
3. Peer evaluation by practice area
Candidates are chosen from 70+ practice areas and evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.
The Rising Stars list is created with the same multiphase selection process as the Super Lawyers list except:
a) Candidate must be either 40 years old (or younger) or in practice for 10 years (or less), and
b) Up to 5% of lawyers in each state are Super Lawyers, but no more than 2.5% are Rising Stars
All attorneys go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who aren’t selected, but meet a Rising Stars eligibility requirement, go through the Rising Stars selection process.

In a legal situation that was daunting, confusing, and thoroughly stressful, the team at Krigel & Krigel was indispensable. The attorneys were knowledgeable, prompt, patient, and communicative. Always taking the time to walk me through the processes & what to expect in the next steps. I couldn’t recommend a better group of professionals.
