Big congratulations from the entire Miller Upshaw Family Law, PLLC team to Karla C. Miller and Rachel S. Upshaw for their selection in Mid-South Super Lawyers for 2023! Both lawyers have been recognized once again as Top Rated Family Law Attorneys in Nashville by Super Lawyers. This peer designation is awarded to only a limited amount of attorneys in each state.
Each year, Super Lawyers recognizes attorneys throughout the country “who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.” Inclusion on the list from year to year is not guaranteed, and you cannot pay be to listed, making Super Lawyers a truly objective ratings service. Only five percent of all eligible attorneys will be included in the list each year.
Per Super Lawyers:
Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective 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, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public.
