Michelle May O’Neil was named to the list of Texas Super Lawyers for family law in the 2012 edition of Texas Monthly magazine. Each year the Texas Super Lawyers list recognizes the top 5% of Texas attorneys in various practice areas.
Texas Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas, including Texas family law, who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Each year lawyers in Texas are invited to nominate the top attorneys they have personally observed in action. Additionally, an attorney-led research staff searches for lawyers who have attained certain honors or results. Then, the researchers evaluate candidates by 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Research evaluations are based on information from a variety of online and database sources including law firm websites, legal publications, and information supplied online.
Texas Super Lawyers magazine features the list and profiles of selected attorneys and is distributed to attorneys in the Texas and the ABA-accredited law school libraries. Super Lawyers is also published as a special section in the Texas Monthly magazine and distributed to their subscribers state wide.
In the United States, Super Lawyers magazine is published in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., reaching more than 13 million readers.
