Super Lawyers magazine identified the top attorneys in the New York Metro area based on an independent survey of nearly 90,000 attorneys. Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas 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. Selection for Super Lawyers is particularly noteworthy as ballots for the directory are sent to every lawyer in the state who has been licensed to practice for five years or more. Jamie Schare Friedland was nominated as one of the Top Women Attorneys in New York for 2014.
