Michael D. Kelly Named as Rising Stars in Massachusetts

June 19, 2017

Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers is proud to announce that attorney Michael D. Kelly has been listed as Massachusetts Super Lawyer Rising Stars.

Massachusetts Super Lawyers Rising Stars Award

Super Lawyers has a strict selection process for attorneys who reach the rising stars status. The selection process offers a credible, diverse listing of top-rated attorneys, with candidates first being nominated via:

  • Peers
  • Managing party survey
  • Super Lawyers research team
  • Third-party feedback

Lawyers cannot nominate themselves for the selection process. Nominees are then thoroughly researched and evaluated in the second phase of the process, with 12 main indicators put into consideration, including:

  • Verdicts and settlements
  • Experience
  • Honors and awards
  • Certifications and special licenses
  • Bar and professional activity
  • Pro bono and community service
  • Scholarly publications and lectures

Numerous other factors are also researched to weed out lawyers and ensure that only the best listings are provided.

Candidates given the highest point totals will move on to the next step in the selection process, which is a rigorous peer evaluation of candidates. The peer evaluation is conducted by blue ribbon panel members who evaluate only others within their practice area.

A small number of attorneys make it into the final selection process, with just 2.5% earning the rising stars award.

Rising stars must be:

  • 40 years old or younger, or
  • Practicing for 10 years or less

Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers is proud to announce that both attorneys have been chosen and nominated as Rising Stars in the state. The duo has additionally been recognized as “Top 40 Under 40” lawyers by the National Trial Lawyer Association.
