    Nagel is a 2018 Super Lawyers Rising Star

    Matthew Nagel of the BiState Law Center was named a 2018 Super Lawyers Rising Star in Missouri. Every year the Super Lawyers organization selects attorneys from all firm sizes and over 70 practice areas throughout the United States, based upon peer nominations by other attorneys. No more than 2.5% of lawyers in the State of Missouri are named to the Rising Stars list. [Super Lawyers] attorney-led research staff searches for lawyers who have attained certain honors, results or credentials, which indicate a high degree of peer recognition or professional competence. For example, certification as a specialist in a particular area of practice, or admission to prestigious colleges or academies, e.g., The American College of Trial Lawyers. The staff identifies these credentials by reviewing a proprietary list of database and online sources, including national and local legal trade publications.
