Attorney William F. Ahern, Jr. named a Massachusetts Super Lawyer
Partner, William F. Ahern, Jr., has been selected as a Massachusetts Super Lawyer. Only five percent of attorneys in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts receive the honor of being named a Super Lawyer.
Super Lawyers is a legal publication that conducts annual state-wide surveys of practicing lawyers with more than five years of experience. The legal publication uses a multi-step process to identify quality candidates. The publication measures the amount of peer recognition and professional achievement of each proposed attorney to determine who will receive the designation of Super Lawyer.
There were more than 800,000 Super Lawyer nomination ballots sent throughout the country. The ballots ask attorneys to nominate colleagues in their field who they have personally observed in action. Additionally, staff at Super Lawyers conducts interviews, completes research and consults databases to identify the top lawyers in each state. There are a number of factors considered in evaluating potential Super Lawyer candidates such as experience, honors and awards, special licenses, positions within the firm, pro-bono and community service, scholarly lectures and writing, education, and employment background. In 1991, Law and Politics magazine published the first issue of Minnesota's Super Lawyers, a consumer's guide to the best attorneys in the state. As the annual magazine gained recognition, publishers began to introduce Super Lawyers in cities around the country.
