Bernstein Liebhard LLP is pleased to announce that for the third consecutive year, three of the firm’s partners have been named by Super Lawyers to be among the top lawyers in New York State. Partners Jeffrey M. Haber, Rebecca M. Katz, and U. Seth Ottensoser have all been named as New York Super Lawyers for 2010. Four  of the firm’s partners have been named as Super Lawyers since 2007: Mr. Haber and Ms. Katz were named as Super Lawyers in 2008 and 2009 and Senior Partner Stanley D. Bernstein was named in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Only five percent of the lawyers in New York are named by Super Lawyers. The selections for Super Lawyers are made by their research team, which is a service of the Thomson Reuters, Legal division based in Eagan, Minnesota. Each year, the research team at Super Lawyers undertakes a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by the attorney-led research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check.
