Super Lawyers magazine has named New Orleans, Louisiana attorney Stephen Hébert a Rising Star in Criminal Defense for 2013.  While up to five percent of Louisiana lawyers are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.

 

Regarding the selction process, a survey is conducted where lawyers are asked to nominate the best attorneys who are 40 or under, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less. They are instructed to nominate lawyers they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.

 

In addition to the general survey, an attorney-led research team subsequently reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. The research staff also confirms that nominees are properly licensed, in good standing with the state licensing agency, and, when possible, that they have no history of disciplinary action that would warrant removal from the list.

 

Lastly, the point totals from the general survey and research process are then added to arrive at a final tally. The lawyers are ranked by point totals and those with the highest point totals are named to the Rising Stars list. No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to the list. To ensure a diverse and well-balanced list, the research staff considers factors such as firm size, practice area and geographic location.

 

Stephen D. Hébert has been named by New Orleans Magazine as one of New Orleans' top lawyers in criminal defense for 2012.
