34 Jaffe Attorneys Honored as Super Lawyers; Nine Recognized as Michigan Rising Stars

SOUTHFIELD, MICH. – Super Lawyers magazine has again recognized 34 Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss, P.C. attorneys in 18 practice areas as Michigan Super Lawyers and nine attorneys in seven practice areas as Michigan Rising Stars. Jaffe CEO Jeffrey Weiss made the announcement.

Super Lawyers selects attorneys from more than 70 practice areas using a patented, multi-phase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research, and each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis to create a comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys. No more than five percent of attorneys in each state qualify for their state’s Super Lawyers list.

The Michigan Rising Star recognition is awarded to attorneys 40 years old or younger, or those who have been practicing for less than 10 years. Less than 2.5 percent of attorneys are recognized as Rising Stars each year.
