Robert W. Haley of Bassett, Virginia is once again named among the Virginia Super Lawyers selected in the practice area of Elder Law. Law & Politics magazine announced in July its national list of "Super Lawyers." The Super Lawyer list consists of the top five percent of attorneys in each state, as chosen by their peers and through independent research of the magazine. Haley was also a 2007 and 2009 Super Lawyer.
The objective of the Super Lawyer selection process is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource to assist attorneys and sophisticated consumers in the search for legal counsel. The selection process begins with a survey in which attorneys are asked to nominate the best lawyers they have personally observed in action. Additional names are added to the candidate pool through searches of legal databases, online sources, and in-person meetings. The background and experience of each candidate is then researched for evidence of peer recognition and professional achievement. After grouping the candidates by their primary areas of practice, those with the highest point totals in each category are selected as Super Lawyers.
Haley, Certified Elder Law Attorney, has been practicing in the field of elder law for over ten years. He is an active member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorney and serves on the Board of Directors of the Virginia Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. Haley was also named to the Elder Law Council of the Virginia Bar Association.
