We are pleased to announce that Lisa Johnson has been selected as a 2022 Kentucky Super Lawyer. It is a fitting tribute to Attorney Johnson’s skills and dedication in serving the people of Kentucky since 1988.
Super Lawyer status is awarded to those considered in the top 5% of lawyers in the state. It is an annual process relying on a rigorous and highly competitive selection process.
How do you become a Super Lawyer?
First, you need other lawyers in the state to nominate you for the work they see you doing. Once the Super Lawyers team has the nominations, it sets about researching the nominees using 12 indicators:
- Representative Clients
- Special licenses/certifications
- Position within the law firm
- Bar and/or professional activity
- Pro bono and community service
- Scholarly lectures/writings
- Education/employment background
- Other outstanding achievements
Next comes the peer review process: The top-ranking candidates must then review the other candidates chosen that practice in their area of law. The judges then combine all the information gathered to decide who they award Super Lawyer status for the year.
So while success in the courtroom is crucial, it is about so much more than that. It highlights those who go above and beyond their day job, contributing to their local community and the general legal community.
Lisa L. Johnson is a fine example, having served on the board of governors and as president for various legal authorities at state and county levels while volunteering her time to help many local causes.
