Spagnuolo, has received the title of ‘Michigan Super Lawyer.’  The Super Lawyer title is awarded to outstanding Michigan attorneys who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.  Only five percent of the lawyers in Michigan are named Super Lawyers.

 How Super Lawyers are Selected

The polling, research and selection are performed by Law & Politics, a division of Key Professional Media, Inc.  Law & Politics has been publishing legal magazines and Super Lawyers since 1990.

Law & Politics uses a multi-step selection process that takes approximately nine months. The foundation of the process is a survey sent to active lawyers in the state.  In addition to the survey, Law & Politics researches credentials of nominees, directly contacts lawyers and law firm representatives, verifies data and conducts a good-standing review of candidates.

Each year Law & Politics sends surveys to more than 30,000 active Michigan attorneys.  The survey asks the lawyers to nominate the best attorneys they’ve personally worked with or observed in action.  Then, the nominees are grouped into more than 55 practice areas and are evaluated by a blue ribbon panel of preeminent peers in their practice areas.  In making the final selection, candidates are divided by firm size—large, medium, and small.  From the pool of candidates, only 5 percent of Michigan attorneys are selected as Michigan Super lawyers.
