(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 14, 2011 ) Newport News, Virginia Attorney Robert R. Hatten of Patten, Wornom, Hatten & Diamonstein has been selected as a Super Lawyer for 2012, an honor bestowed to only 5% of all practicing attorneys. This is the 7th consecutive time Mr. Hatten has been chosen by Super Lawyers, a rating service of outstanding attorneys from more than 70 areas of practice.
Attorneys who are chosen as Super Lawyers are put through a rigorous and multi-phase rating process, which is based on peer nominations and evaluations, as well as third-party research. The selection process begins with the creation of a candidate pool, in which lawyers are entered after they are nominated by a peer or discovered during the Star Search process. Next, the research department at Super Lawyers examines each candidate on 12 indicators of career achievements and peer recognition including but not limited to the following: verdicts and settlements; honors and awards; scholarly lectures and writings; special licenses and certifications; and representative clients. Next, during the blue ribbon review, candidates are categorized according to their main practice area; those with the most number of points from the previous rounds are selected to the blue ribbon panel. Panelists are then given a list of candidates from their area of practice to review and provide a rating based on a one-to-ten scale. Lastly, during the final selection, candidates are categorized into four groups, based on firm size. Attorneys with the most number of points from each category are chosen as Super Lawyers.
Robert R. Hatten has again prevailed through this rigorous screening process and will be included in the 2012 edition of Super Lawyers magazine, which is published in every state and reaches more than 13 million readers.
