The Van Winkle Law Firm is pleased to announce that seven of our attorneys

Super Lawyers®. Steve Grabenstein (Estate Trust & Litigation), Robert Haggard (Top

John Kelso (Estate Planning & Probate), Larry McDevitt (Antitrust

Super Lawyers® selects attorneys through the use of a patented selections process, relying
on peer nominations and evaluations that are combined with independent
research. Lawyers may not nominate themselves and cannot campaign for
their nominations. Once in the candidate pool, lawyers are evaluated based
on 12 indicators, including verdicts and settlements, experience, special
licenses and certifications, honors and awards, position within a law
firm, and professional activity. Candidates who receive the highest scores
serve on the Blue Ribbon Panel and evaluate other candidates within their
primary practice area.
Selections are made annually and on a state-by-state basis. Only 5% of
attorneys are selected from each state, making this distinction a rare
and great honor.
