Ulmer & Berne Congratulates 57 Attorneys Named to 2016 Ohio Super Lawyers List

Ulmer & Berne announces that 41 of its attorneys have been selected to the 2016 Ohio Super Lawyers list. In addition, 16 of the firm’s attorneys have been selected to the 2016 Ohio Super Lawyers Rising Stars list, a designation reserved for the industry’s best lawyers either 40 years old or under or in practice for 10 years or less.

Four Ulmer & Berne attorneys received special recognition – Michael N. Ungar, Michael S. TuckerFrances Floriano Goins and Patricia A. Shlonsky. For the fourth consecutive year, Mr. Ungar tops the entire list and ranks #1 of all attorneys in Ohio. Mr. Tucker was recognized in the Top 100 attorneys in Ohio while Ms. Goins and Ms. Shlonsky were recognized as one of the Top 50 female attorneys in Ohio as well as one of the Top 25 female attorneys in Cleveland.

Annual selections for the Ohio Super Lawyers list are made using a patented multi-phase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. The objective of the research 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. Only five percent of Ohio lawyers are chosen as Ohio Super Lawyers and 2.5 percent are recognized as Rising Stars.
