Six attorneys from Franklin & Prokopik’s Baltimore office will be recognized as Super Lawyers and another nine as Rising Stars in the 2016 edition of Maryland Super Lawyers.  Super Lawyers is a nationally recognized rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.  Their objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys to be used as a resource for both attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel.   

Super Lawyer candidates are selected via peer nomination or identification by the research team and are then evaluated using 12 indicating factors.  No more than 5% of attorneys in Maryland are selected for the Super Lawyers list and no more than 2.5% are selected as Rising Stars.  The number of Franklin & Prokopik attorneys to receive this honor has more than doubled in the last two years.
