Boise, Idaho – June 15, 2018. Hawley Troxell announced today that 27 of their attorneys were recognized in the 2018 issue of Mountain States Super Lawyers. Sheila Schwager was ranked “Top 50 Women” list, and James Martin was ranked “Top 100” list.

Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective 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. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public.
