The lists appear in the June 2017 issues of Philadelphia magazine and Pennsylvania Super Lawyersmagazine. Each year only five percent of Pennsylvania attorneys receive the Super Lawyers honor and only 2.5 percent receive the Rising Star honor. The Philadelphia magazine issue also includes the 2017 New Jersey Super Lawyers and New Jersey Rising Stars.
