Selection to Super Lawyers is not a small achievement. Only up to 5% of all attorneys are recognized by Super Lawyers, and the service does not utilize a “pay to play” selection process.  Super Lawyers uses a multiphase selection process that includes peer nominations, evaluations, and independent research to determine which attorneys will receive the honor.  Please click this link to view Jim Flaherty’s Super Lawyers listing.
