2020 Super Lawyers Recognizes 33 Attorneys from Hall Estill

October 28, 2020

Hall Estill, Oklahoma’s leading law firm with offices in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Denver and Northwest Arkansas, has announced 33 of its attorneys were selected by their peers for inclusion on the 2020 Super Lawyers annual list of the state’s top attorneys. Seven attorneys were named 2020 Oklahoma Rising Stars, a prestigious recognition for up-and-coming attorneys, and one attorney, Elaine Turner, was listed as a top 25 female attorney, as well as a top 50 attorney in Oklahoma.

“We’re proud to once again have our attorneys recognized on this esteemed list,” said Mike Cooke, managing partner for Hall Estill. “This peer recognition is a testament to the exceptional service and commitment our attorneys provide for our clients and the community.” 

Super Lawyers has been recognized by bar associations and courts across the country for the legitimacy and rigor of its selection process. Attorneys are selected using a rigorous, multi-phase rating process including peer nominations and evaluations combined with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, and the lawyers recognized represent no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state.  

Launched in 1998, Rising Stars is a list that recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state. To qualify for this award, candidates must be 40 years old or younger, or have been practicing for 10 years or less.
