Belen Olmedo Guerra, founder and managing attorney of Belen Law Firm, has been chosen by Super Lawyers as a 2020 Arizona Rising Star. This is an honor, awarded to less than three percent of attorneys in Arizona.
Super Lawyers is a service that rates attorneys in more than seventy practice areas who have a high degree of peer recognition, as well as professional achievement. The selection process begins with a nomination, then moves to peer evaluations, and is followed by independent research. At the end of the day, only five percent of lawyers are selected to be listed on the Super Lawyers platform, and 2.5 percent or less are chosen as Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars.
Super Lawyers states that the “Rising Start” list only includes lawyers who are forty years old or younger, or those who have been practicing law for ten years or less. They must be nominated by another lawyer who has personally observed their skill level. Their research team, led by attorneys, reviews the credentials of each nominee and assigns points, based on a predetermined set of evaluation criteria. The lawyers are ranked by point totals and those with the highest point totals are then added to a list, and only the top 2.5% make it to rising star.
The goal is to provide clients with exceptional legal representation, whether they need an Arizona juvenile defense lawyer, a high profile criminal defense lawyer or a sex crimes lawyer in the Phoenix area. Belen strives to provide quality, personalized legal representation for all of her clients.
