Shatz, Schwartz and Fentin, P.C. of Springfield and Northampton announced that eight of the firm’s attorneys have been selected as 2011 Massachusetts Super Lawyers. In choosing Super Lawyers, ballots are sent by Law & Politics to more than 31,000 Massachusetts attorneys who have been in practice for five or more years. These attorneys then nominate their peers based on professional achievement and a high level of peer recognition. Independent research is then conducted on each of the nominees, followed by a blue-ribbon panel-review process, and the top 5% in each state are named Super Lawyers. The objective of the Super Lawyers selection process is to create a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource to assist attorneys and sophisticated consumers in the search for legal counsel.
