Posted By The McClellan Law Firm || Jan 28, 2016

Our firm is honored to announce that Attorney Craig McClellan has been selected in the2016 Super Lawyers® list for the 10th year in a row (2007-2016), an honor that few other attorneys can claim.

Breaking Down the Super Lawyers Selection Process

So what does this recognition mean to you as a potential client? Understanding how the selection process works can shed light on the expertise and reliability of a legal professional recognized by Super Lawyers. Every year, lawyers within in each state are given the opportunity to nominate the top attorneys they've observed in action in their area. Lawyers cannot nominate themselves and votes to attorneys within their own firm don’t carry as much weight. The nomination process is carefully scrutinized to ensure fairness.

Once candidates are solidified, they will be assessed on factors such as:

  • Recent verdicts and settlements
  • Leadership within a law firm
  • Professional activity
  • Outstanding achievements, honors, or awards
  • Overall experience and client representation
  • Special certifications or licenses
  • Peer evaluation

When all the necessary information is collected and reviewed, attorneys will be grouped into different categories based on firm-size and those with the highest point totals will be selected for inclusion in the well-respected Super Lawyers list. This shows just how challenging it is for a legal professional to be selected to the list— demonstrating the quality of representation a Super Lawyers list attorney will provide.

Upholding a Legacy of Legal Excellence

As a top rated personal injury lawyer in San Diego, Attorney McClellan has secured more than 110 verdicts in excess of $1 million. He has also been recognized by many other prestigious organizations, including San Diego Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, Best Lawyers®, and Consumer Attorneys™ of San Diego.

  • “We could not be happier with the McCllelan Law Firm team! My husband and I were referred to Craig McCllelan by one of his peers. We had a very sensitive medical malpractice case that we were hesitant to even pursue. Craig and his team sat down and walked us through the entire process giving us their honest opinion and options. We felt very comfortable with the process and completely relieved by the end of the first meeting, so we decided to proceed. It is three years later and we couldn't be happier that we did. Craig, Connor, and his team made the entire experience so easy and smooth. They were always available no matter how small our question or concern. I swear they work 24/7! And most importantly, we knew that they truly cared about us and the outcome. They fought for our family and have given us the piece of mind that our son's healthcare will always be covered. It is truly the greatest gift and we will forever be in their debt!”
