Lawyers at Welcenbach Law Offices Included in Super Lawyers and Rising Stars Lists

August 5, 2014

Our Milwaukee personal injury lawyers at Welcenbach Law Offices, S.C. have proven themselves yet again! Each of our firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Super Lawyers® Magazine for the year of 2013–either through the Wisconsin Super Lawyers® list or through the Wisconsin Super Lawyers® Rising Stars list. Being named in either of these listings is a major accomplishment, considering that such a small percentage of lawyers in the state are chosen for them each year–no more than 5% for Super Lawyers® and no more than 2.5% for Rising Stars.

While the Super Lawyers® list recognizes top-tier attorneys of all different ages, the Rising Stars list is reserved only for top up-and-coming lawyers who are age 40 or younger, who have only been practicing as attorneys for 10 years or less. Below is a breakdown of the lists our attorneys were named to this year and in previous years.

Joseph J. Welcenbach:
Super Lawyers®: 2012 and 2013

Robert J. Welcenbach:
Super Lawyers®: 2013
Rising Stars: 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012

Jeanne E. Bell:
Rising Stars: 2012 and 2013

The Super Lawyers® selection process, which is used for both listings, involves peer nomination, peer review and independent research, according to the Supers Lawyers® website. The selection process has been patented since April 2013. It all starts with nominations by professional peers who have seen the lawyers in action. Later, through the independent research stage, the attorneys are evaluated in 12 key areas by the Super Lawyers® research team. Furthermore, the peer review stage involves the attorneys being rated (on a scale of one to ten) by a special panel of other well-respected lawyers who practice the same type of law. The candidates’ overall scores are calculated and the finalists are selected from four different categories that are based on firm size.

Our attorneys, who have more than 60 years of collective experience in personal injury law, have also been recognized in other ways. Both Attorney Robert Welcenbach and Attorney Bell have received Avvo ratings of 10.0 Superb. Robert Welcenbach has also had the honor of being included in The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40.
