Attorney Matthew Meyerkord Selected for 2013 Super Lawyers® List

Kansas City Personal Injury Attorney Matthew Meyerkord has recently been bestowed a major honor. He has been selected for inclusion in the 2013 Super Lawyers® list for Missouri and Kansas. Through his selection, Mr. Meyerkord has proven that he is a top-tier personal injury lawyer in his local area, particularly since inclusion in this prestigious list is an honor extended to no more than 5% of lawyers in each state. In 2012, Mr. Meyerkord was also included in the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list, which recognizes accomplished lawyers of 40 years of age or younger who are considered to be "up-and-coming."

Super Lawyers® uses its list to recognize attorneys who have are deemed as having high levels of recognition from their professional peers. The selection process for the list involves various stages, which includes a peer review stage. The steps are as follows, according to the organization's website:

Step 1—Attorneys are given the opportunity to nominate others whom they deem to be top attorneys. These must be individuals whom the nominators have personally observed. Third-party research by Super Lawyers® is also used to choose candidates for consideration.

Step 2—The Super Lawyers® research department evaluates each candidate through 12 key indicators, which are used to measure the legal professionals' peer recognition and professional achievement levels. Some of these indicators include verdicts and settlements, experience, special licenses and certifications, awards and honors, and more. Points are assessed for the candidates in each of these areas.

Step 3—A special group of attorneys is selected to serve as a "blue ribbon panel." The panel members then use a scale of one to ten rate candidates who fall within the same practice areas as themselves.

Final Selection—After being divided into different categories based on firm size, the candidates in each of the categories with the greatest number of points are chosen to be included in the Super Lawyers® list. No more than 5% of attorneys in each state are selected.

Before the names of the finalists are officially published, the research team does additional checking to see if any of the selected attorneys are in bad standing with their local licensing authorities. The final verified list is then published in Super Lawyers® Magazines in different states.

In addition to being chosen for this honor, Attorney Meyerkord has also been named the 2011 Best of the Bar by the Kansas City Journal. Furthermore, Missouri Lawyers Weekly has named him a 2010 Up & Coming Lawyer.
