Seattle DUI Attorney Matthew Leyba the owner of Leyba Defense PLLC was recently named a 2013 Rising Star in the area of DUI Defense by Super Lawyers and Seattle Met Magazine. This is an honor less than 2.5% of all Attorneys in Washington State receive.
Super Lawyers is a rating service that reviews lawyer from over 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. This is a very selective organization on who it nominates and recognizes. This award cannot be bought or obtained in any other way except through peer recognition and professional achievements.
To be named a Rising Star, Super lawyers selects an Attorney based on peer nominations, independent evaluations, and third party research using a 4 step process:
First lawyers enter the candidate pool by either being nominated from their peers, or through third party research. What makes this award so special is most of those that receive it have been nominated by their peers. Secondly the research department evaluates each candidate to see whether they meet certain standards of peer recognition and personal achievement. Thirdly each lawyer is placed in their particular legal field. They are then compared with other laws based on the point system obtained in the second stop. Lastly the final selection is made and published.
Overall this is quite an accomplishment for Matthew Leyba. Unlike some other awards other DUI Attorneys claim to have. This cannot be purchased or obtained in any other way other than peer recognition. Meaning other DUI Attorneys in Seattle nominated Matthew Leyba, which is the ultimate validation of his skills as a DUI Attorney.
So congrats to firm owner Matthew Leyba on being named a 2013 Rising Star in DUI Defense, and here is to many more nominations in the future!
