Attorneys Diamond and Latanision Selected As 2016 Super Lawyers®

Sacks Weston Diamond LLC is renowned throughout Philadelphia and the country for being comprised of some of the top complex litigation attorneys in the world. We are proud to announce that we have continued this tradition of excellence through the 2016 Super Lawyers® list selections. Attorney Scott E. Diamond was named a Super Lawyer® and Attorney D. Alexander Latanision was named a Super Lawyer® Rising Star℠.

Attorney Scott E. Diamond has been selected to Super Lawyers® for three consecutive years now (2014 to 2016). It is a testament to his talents in litigation and law interpretation that he has accrued throughout his career, which began decades ago. He has also been named a Top Rated Lawyer in Personal Injury Law by American Lawyer Media and Martindale-Hubbell®. Mr. Diamond’s personal case conclusion record amounts to more than $100 million collected for clients in wide-scale personal injury cases and mass torts; he is also the director of the firm’s subrogation department.

Attorney D. Alexander Latanision has been considered one of the best and brightest young minds in personal injury litigation. It is only fitting, then, that he attained the 2016 selection to Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠, a group of attorneys who are all under 40 years old and have less than 10 years of practice under their belts. Less than 2.5% of all attorneys in a particular state will be named as Rising Stars℠, making this achievement truly remarkable. Even though he is relatively new to the legal scene, Attorney Latanision has already made a name for himself and has achieved millions of dollars for his clients through successful verdicts and settlements.

The Super Lawyers® Selection Process

Every attorney wants to be named a Super Lawyer®, but the truth is only the top 5% of all lawyers in the country will be able to earn this title each year. There is no buying the selection or rigging the system. Super Lawyers® has long been considered one of the best attorney-rating organizations in the world for its professionalism, thoroughness, and unbiased reviews of lawyers in all manners of legal practices.

The selection process begins with formal nominations sent in from peers across the state. Lawyers may not nominate themselves and any nominations given to other professionals in their own law firm are given less weight in the selection process – one of the many ways Super Lawyers® strives to be completely neutral. While more peer nominations means an attorney is more likely to be reviewed, it is not the only measure Super Lawyers® uses when selecting nominees.

The second step is researching an attorney’s history. Accreditations, professional honors, and consistently positive case results will earn the attorney more points. Through this part of the selection process, Super Lawyers® may come across “smaller names,” such as truly remarkable attorneys who take only a few cases per year within their own communities. It is all to ensure that no one is overlooked and that the attorneys who do make the final selection are the best out there. In addition to thorough independent research and additional peer evaluations, the Super Lawyers® selection process runs the gamut of assessments.

Finally, the final nominees are arranged into four categories, based on the size of their law firms. This prevents single-attorney firms from having to compete with firms with more than 100 lawyers on staff. After a last check for errors or discrepancies, Super Lawyers® chooses and names the top 5% in each category for that year, printing the names in several publications.
