Southwest Florida Attorney Preston J. Scheiner of Associates & Bruce L. Scheiner has Been Included in the 2010 Rising Stars List by Florida's SuperLawyers Magazine
Only five percent of the lawyers in the state are named by Super Lawyers and only 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to the Rising Stars list. 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, the attorney-led research team 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.
To ensure a diverse and well-balanced list, the research staff considers factors such as firm size, practice area and geographic location.
