As one of the few Utah attorneys named to 2020’s Super Lawyers® list, Roger Dodd has once again distinguished himself as an effective and highly esteemed lawyer. This award, given yearly, evaluates lawyers using a 4-step process to find those who excel in multiple areas. Legal work is not just about whether you can argue in front of a court. It also requires one to work well with clients; to continue to educate themself; and to give back to their community when possible. These are just some of the factors Super Lawyers® considers when narrowing down its list of nominees.
Though primarily a personal injury attorney, Roger has also been recognized for his excellence in both family law and criminal defense. This is his fourth straight selection to Utah Super Lawyers®. Roger has also been recognized as a Super Lawyer in Georgia since 2004 and Florida since 2009.
Why Super Lawyers®?
Each year, Thomson Reuters publishes its Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars lists to help consumers find quality legal representation when they are in need. Though attorneys can be nominated by their peers or managing partners at their firm, they are then reviewed by an independent team. These researchers analyze 12 different indicators of professional success. Scores for each category are weighted according to the significance of each. The top-scoring attorneys are then rated by a Blue Ribbon panel of top lawyers in their practice area. Only the top 5% of attorneys in each Super Lawyers® region are selected to the final list.
Attorney Patricia Kuendig Is a Longtime Rising Stars Listee
For those nearer to the beginning of their legal careers, the Rising Stars list, also by Thomson Reuters, is similar to Super Lawyers®. After being evaluated through the same process as more experienced peers, 2.5% of those who qualify for this list are selected. To be considered for Rising Stars, a lawyer must be under 40 or in the first 10 years of their legal career. Patricia Kuendig was honored to be selected to this list from 2009-2019. Though primarily in personal injury practice now, she has also helped many clients with their family law, criminal defense, and general litigation needs in the past.
A Sign of a Well-Rounded Attorney
Because selection to Super Lawyers® depends on a rigorous process, attorneys must excel in multiple areas to be recognized. In fact, much of a lawyer’s impact depends on how they go above and beyond the call of duty. At Dodd & Kuendig, we encourage our team to take advantage of leadership opportunities and chances for community involvement because we believe giving back matters. As we enrich those around us, we also enrich ourselves. From local volunteering to speaking and educational engagements across the U.S., we strive to have a positive impact on our world.
