Tim Clinton Selected for 2019 Washington, DC Super Lawyers
Washington DC SuperLawyers Magazine has selected founding partner Tim Clinton to its list of "SuperLawyers" for 2019. Mr. Clinton was first selected to this list in 2016 and has remained on the list for four years running. Before that, he and partner Matt Peed were selected for inclusion in the list of "Rising Stars" for 2014 and 2015; partner Greg Lipper was selected for inclusion in the “Rising Stars” list in 2013; and partner Alec Rosenberg was selected for inclusion in the “SuperLawyers” lists of 2014 and 2015.
According to SuperLawyers, Tim’s selection for inclusion in the publication was the culmination of a “patented multiphase selection process” that combines “peer nominations and evaluations [with] third party research” based on “12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement”:
This selection is the result of ‘peer nominations and evaluations [with] third party research’ based on ’12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.'
The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public, i.e., lawyers in private practice and Legal Aid attorneys. The Super Lawyers patented selection process involves three basic steps: creation of the candidate pool; evaluation of candidates by the research department; and peer evaluation by practice area. The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.
“Awards like this always reflect the hard work and dedication of the entire firm,” Tim explains. “It is very rare that I appear in court without receiving important and helpful advice from my colleagues. I also file very few briefs without substantial revisions by at least one of my partners, which elevate my legal writing far beyond my own capabilities. Collaboration is one of the keys to our firm’s success, and it is one of the things that makes working at Clinton & Peed so rewarding.”
