Posted by Dev Sethi | Apr 16, 2014 | 0 Comments

When you are looking for a Tucson personal injury attorney, you want to make sure that it is someone that you can depend upon and appreciate. At Kinerk, Schmidt, & Sethi, there are lawyers who have not only been recognized by clients, but by professional organizations. Recently, Ted Schmidt, Burton Kinerk, and Dev Sethi were all listed in the 2013 Southwest Super Lawyers ® Magazine. This magazine lists the best lawyers in a geographic area in order to give potential clients a comprehensive list of approved and proven attorneys to choose from. In addition to all making the list, Attorney Schmidt was honored with a position in the Top 50 All Stars for Super Lawyers ®.

All three partners are now recognized as Super Lawyers ®, which is a significant honor. Every year, Super Lawyers® comes up with an annual list of the top attorneys in Arizona and New Mexico including those who are Rising Stars. The Top 50 list is near the front of the magazine, and shows where some of the best lawyers in the business are located and what firms they are affiliated with. The attorneys are listed in alphabetical order on the Top 50 list so that there is no bias and rankings regarding which attorneys in the Top 50 are better than others.

To become a Super Lawyer®, the Super Lawyers® company takes the process very seriously. First of all, lawyers have the right to nominate top attorneys that they have observed in action and been impressed by. As well, the attorney-led research staff at Super Lawyers® can locate lawyers who have attained certain honors and deserve to be included into the list. Not every lawyer who is initially noticed by Super Lawyers ® will actually make the final list.

Instead, researchers will evaluate all candidates by 12 indicators and have peers watch them as well to determine whether or not they are deserving of a place on the list. Peers are also asked to evaluate attorneys be practice areas. Finally, the candidates are grouped together into categories and those who have the most points from ratings based on selection factors will be permitted to make the list. This is a rigorous and very serious process. The attorneys are then listed by their practice areas in the magazine to help guide those who may be in need of an attorney.

It is exceptionally rare that every partner at a firm be listed as a Super Lawyer® because the honor is only given to attorneys who can meet all credentials and display an impressive amount of successes. At Kinerk, Schmidt, & Sethi, you have a team of experienced Super Lawyer® attorneys who can tackle your case and work hard to give you the assistance that you need. These lawyers have represented the citizens of Tucson, Arizona for over 40 years and have been able to recover more than $100 million in settlements for clients all throughout the state of Arizona.
