Carey Law Office, LLC is pleased to announce that Joseph Carey was selected for inclusion in the 2024 Maryland Super Lawyers list for his work in the area of Criminal Defense. This is the ninth consecutive year Mr. Carey has been named to Super Lawyers.

Super Lawyers is an objective rating service that creates an annual list of “outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.” You cannot purchase a place on the list, and selection one year does not guarantee selection the next. Only 5% of all eligible attorneys will be named to the Super Lawyers list for their practice area and region each year.

Per Super Lawyers:

Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, we limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public.
