Nix recognized as a Rising Star among attorneys

Posted: Friday, March 4, 2016

Jeremy K. Nix, an attorney from the law firm of Matheny, Hahn, Denman and Nix, LLP, was selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers in 2016. Nix was also selected as a Rising Star in 2015. Nix concentrates his practice in the areas of criminal defense, civil litigation and estate planning and probate.

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 includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Selections are made on an annual state-by-state basis.

The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, with one exception: to be eligible for the inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.

All attorneys first go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list, but who meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements, go through the Rising Stars selection process. While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.
