Published by Thomson Reuters, Super Lawyers uses a rigorous, multiphase process that includes independent research, peer nominations and evaluations to rank attorneys in more than 70 practice areas. To be included in the ranking, each candidate must successfully pass 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Once an independent evaluation has been completed, less than 2.5 percent of the attorneys being screened are ultimately recognized as a member of the Super Lawyers list.

“Being named to the Super Lawyers list is an honor,” noted Klemchuk. “In the past, five Klemchuk Kubasta attorneys have been named Super Lawyers a total of sixteen times. We take pride in our ability to provide a high level of service. We particularly appreciate that our peers acknowledge the quality, dedication and determination of the Klemchuk Kubasta team.”
