Stephen J. Torline and Michael T. Crabb have both been recognized by Super Lawyers for their high-level of achievement throughout 2014. Torline was selected to the 2014 Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers annual list, and Crabb was chosen as a 2014 Missouri & Kansas Rising Star.
First published in 1991, Super Lawyers is a nationwide publication which distinguishes attorneys in each state who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection of each “Super Lawyer” is the product of a patented four-step process:
The final result of this process is a list of exceptional attorneys, totaling no more than 5% of lawyers in the region. Using an almost identical selection process, the “Rising Star” selection requires two exceptions: first, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less; and second, while up to 5% of the lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5% are named to Rising Stars.
This year marks Michael Crabb’s second recognition (2013, 2014), and is Stephen Torline’s fifth, having been selected every year since 2010. Congratulations to them both on achieving this honor!
