In its November 2013 issue, Rhode Island Monthly magazine published the annual Rhode Island Super Lawyer selections. For the fifth straight year, Mike Bottaro has been recognized by other Rhode Island lawyers for his expertise in Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Law. Super Lawyers is:
“… a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.”
Super Lawyers has recognized Mike within the Rhode Island personal injury lawyer “Rising Star” in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and now 2013.
As set forth on its website, the selection process is aimed towards creating a credible listing of the best Rhode Island lawyers in different practice areas:
“Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.
The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public, i.e., lawyers in private practice and Legal Aid attorneys.”
