NEW ORLEANS – Louisiana Super Lawyers magazine has recognized 50  lawyers from Phelps Dunbar’s New Orleans and Baton Rouge offices as Super Lawyers or Rising Stars for 2017. These 50 attorneys are considered the top 5 percent of attorneys in Louisiana as voted on by their legal peers throughout the state. They have been vetted through independent research for professional accomplishments, distinction in law practice, and a high level of peer recognition.

New Orleans partners Kim Boyle and Chris Ralston were named to the Top 50 New Orleans and Louisiana Super Lawyers, while Boyle and New Orleans partner Nan Alessandra were named among the Top 25 Women Louisiana Super Lawyers.

Recently patented, the Super Lawyers selection process evaluates attorneys based on 12 criteria, including clients, experience, licenses and certifications, verdicts, awards and honors, scholarly lectures, pro bono and community service, and more. After the assessment, peers vote on lawyers across a particular state or geographic area, in this case, Louisiana.
