Super Lawyers® magazine has recognized all three of RWC’s founding partners in its 2023 edition: Shawn and Jake were each named 2023 Super Lawyers in the state of Maryland, while Chaz was named as a 2023 Rising Star Attorney. This year marked Jake’s ninth selection by Super Lawyers®; his third straight year with the Super Lawyer distinction coming on the heels of his being designated a Rising Star for six consecutive years. Chaz has been chosen as a Rising Star for five straight years, during which time he has also been voted as Frederick’s “Best Attorney” by readers of the Frederick News-Post in consecutive years. With his first designation as a 2023 Super Lawyer, Shawn joined Jake and Chaz among the few Maryland practitioners singled out for recognition by the annual publication. Each year Super Lawyers® publishes its directory of lawyers “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.”
According to its website, Super Lawyers® “selects attorneys using a patented selection process that involves peer nominations, independent research, and peer evaluations.” Attorneys selected as Super Lawyers “have obtained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement” that is reserved for only the top 5% of lawyers in each state. Rising Stars are generally up-and-coming attorneys in a state who are “40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.” Rising Star recognition is reserved for no more than 2.5% of all lawyers practicing in each state.
RWC is proud that all of its founding partners have been recognized by their peers and included in the annual listing of Maryland’s outstanding legal professionals for 2023, demonstrating the firm’s continuing commitment to delivering excellent service to its clients.
