Esteemed 2016 Florida Rising Star, Van Horn Law Group

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a… Super Lawyer?

I’ve been given a unique award by Super Lawyers and wanted to tell you a little bit about it. I’m not just tooting my own horn – or the horn of my firm – but because I find the process genuinely interesting. The award is called the 2016 Florida Rising Star, and it’s for attorneys who are either under 40 years of age, or in practice for less than ten years. There’s even a prize! What’s interesting about this award is how the selection is done. The process is actually patented, and limited to attorneys in private practice or Legal Aid attorneys. It starts with nominations, either through the research department or by a peer, research, evaluation, and then selection and only 2.5 percent of the lawyers in a given state will make the list.

 

Super Lawyers is a division of Thompson Reuters, and if you think that’s a familiar name, you’d be right. Reuters news agency is part of Thompson Reuters as is Westlaw online legal research, Black’s Law Dictionary, practice software, and respected law book publishers such as Norton bankruptcy Library and West’s legal publications. You could say that these people know lawyers, and as a result have a wide pool of candidates to choose from. That’s one of the reasons that I take the Super Lawyers award very seriously. These people are tops in not just one field, but many, and it’s a unique honor to have their recognition.

We try very hard at Van Horn Law Group to be the practice that cares, that doesn’t shy away from tough or complicated cases, and that doesn’t put billable hours before people. It’s good to be known as the firm that cares, but it’s also good to be appreciated by those in the profession who understand what good practice and ethics are. We want to take the hard cases, the tough cases, the complicated cases, because these are the cases that derail the lives of people in our community. We want to help people get their lives back on track.

I understand it can be intimidating to ask for help, especially from a profession as maligned as the law. In fact, many of the top lawyer rating services exist so that people can find a good lawyer instead of leaving it to picking a name from the phone book. It’s a pretty good bet that the trouble you’re facing has lawyers on its side. You deserve the best fighting chance you can get, and I will fight for you! Give the office a call, and set up a consultation – it’s free – or drop us a line in the mailbag.

Remember, I am only allowed to answer mailbag letters in the most general terms. I really need to see you in a face to face for a consultation to answer your questions and evaluate your case in any kind of detail. Did I mention that it’s free? Just like the mailbag, but better.
