Minneapolis-September 1, 2006 — Minnesota Law & Politics Magazine has released their annual list of “Super Lawyers”. Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben, P.A is very pleased to congratulate shareholder, Richard L. Tousignant on being selected as a 2006 Minnesota "Super Lawyers". This year marks the eighth consecutive year Tousignant has been named one of Minnesota’s top attorneys. We would also like to congratulate Richard for recently being named to the list of 2006 “Top 40 Personal Injury Lawyers” in Minnesota.
Only the top five percent of Minnesota attorneys are named Super Lawyers based on votes from attorneys throughout the state who nominated the best lawyers they have personally observed in action. Law & Politics mailed approximately 16,000 ballots to active lawyers in Minnesota. An attorney-led research staff reviewed the nominees’ credentials, licensure, and standing with the Bar, assigning points based upon defined evaluation criteria. A Blue Ribbon panel of attorneys scored the top vote-getters, who were divided into 55 areas of practice. The 2006™ Super Lawyers survey was published in the August-September edition of Minnesota Law & Politics Magazine, Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine and Twin Cities Business Monthly.
