Chain | Cohn | Clark managing partner David Cohn named Southern California ‘Super Lawyer’ for fourth straight year
This is the fourth year in a row that Cohn has received the honor, awarded to no more than 5 percent of lawyers in the Southern California region based on a high-degree of peer recognition and personal achievement.
“It’s a huge honor to be selected yet again as a Super Lawyer, and to be recognized by the legal professionals I deeply respect, and work with,” Cohn said.
Each year, the selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. The Super Lawyers program selects attorneys using a multi-phase selection process where each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, according to Super Lawyers.
The objective of the recognition program is “to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel.”
Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, the program limits the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public, the Super Lawyers website states.
As part of the honor, Cohn is highlighted in the 2015 issue of Southern California Super Lawyers Magazine, released in January, along with other awarded legal professionals.
Chain | Cohn | Clark partner Matthew Clark has also been honored by Super Lawyers. Clark was named a “Rising Star” in the Super Lawyers program, which is bestowed upon only 2.5 percent of lawyers under the age of 40 in the Southern California region. You can also read his profile on the Super Lawyers website.
The Super Lawyers honor adds to the list of recent accolades for the veteran trial attorney. Recently, Cohn was selected to join the International Society of Barristers, a widely-respected invitation-only group whose aim it is to preserve trial by jury, the adversary system and an independent judiciary.
He was also selected for membership into The National Trial Lawyers “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” program, a premier group of attorneys who practice civil plaintiff law in the state of California that is invitation only, and extended exclusively to attorneys who meet stringent qualifications and specialize in the legal practice of criminal defense or civil plaintiff.
