The Mellino Law Firm Honored by 2021 Ohio Super Lawyers® December 8, 2020.

The Mellino Law Firm Honored by 2021 Ohio Super Lawyers®

We are proud to announce that Super Lawyers® has named all of our attorneys at The Mellino Law Firm in the 2021 edition! With no more than a small percentage of United States practicing attorneys obtaining this honor on an annual basis, this is truly a great achievement for our firm.

About Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars

Super Lawyers® has garnered national respect as a reputable lawyer-rating service. Every year, the publication ranks practicing lawyers from across more than 70 practice areas, requiring them to undergo a vigorous review process to be awarded a listing.

The review consists of multiple phases, the first being that the lawyer must be nominated for Super Lawyers® consideration by a third party. Then, attorneys are examined in a dozen different categories, including but not limited to:

  • Verdicts and settlements
  • Pro bono work
  • Experience
  • Special licenses and certifications
  • Other honors and awards
  • Bar and professional activity

After this, a Blue Ribbon Panel comprising the highest-scoring attorneys thus far evaluates other candidates to determine whether their work warrants a listing. Only 5% of the nation’s attorneys make the cut.

Super Lawyers® reserves Rising Stars, a separate list, for attorneys either in the first 10 years of their careers or no older than age 40. With a limited eligibility pool, approximately 2.5% of practicing attorneys earn Rising Stars recognition.

Our Accolades in the 2021 Edition

The Mellino Law Firm legal team was recognized by Super Lawyers® for our noteworthy work in Rocky River, Ohio. We have won myriad multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients over almost 40 years of practice and remain committed to continuing our pursuit of justice for those injured.

Since 2009, Attorney Christopher M. Mellino has been selected to Super Lawyers®, and in 2021 Ohio Super Lawyers®, he was recognized for his work in four different practice areas:

  • Personal Injury - Medical Malpractice: Plaintiff
  • Personal Injury - General: Plaintiff
  • Civil Litigation: Plaintiff
  • Personal Injury - Products: Plaintiff

The remainder of our attorneys at The Mellino Law Firm met the criteria for the 2021 Ohio Rising Stars list:

  • Calder C. Mellino (2019-2021)
    • Personal Injury - Medical Malpractice: Plaintiff
    • Personal Injury - General: Plaintiff
    • Intellectual Property
  • Meghan C. Lewallen (2016-2021)
    • Personal Injury - Medical Malpractice: Plaintiff

Both of these attorneys were previously recognized in Rising Stars, as noted by the dates accompanying their names.

Congratulations to our legal team on this astounding achievement! We are very proud to boast a team of lawyers renowned by peers, clients, and courtroom opposition alike.
