TAM attorneys named Colorado Super Lawyers, Rising Stars in 2012 publication.

TAM is pleased to announce that shareholders L. Richard Musat, Michael L. Hutchinson, and Mark A. Pottinger have been selected as Colorado Super Lawyers in that publication’s 2012 edition.

Selection to the “Super Lawyers” list, as described on the publication’s website, indicates that each member was chosen by their peers and through the independent research of Law & Politics. The list of 2011 Colorado Super Lawyers is based on surveys of more than 13,000 lawyers across the state. The goal was to select as Super Lawyers the top 5 percent of Colorado attorneys in more than 60 practice areas. The list of Colorado Super Lawyers is published annually in the April issues of 5280 Magazine and Colorado Super Lawyers, which is mailed to every attorney in the state.

Mr. Musat and Mr. Pottinger are recognized again as the only Colorado attorneys to be selected to the highly specialized Aviation list for their work in that area.

Mr. Hutchinson is again named to the list with a primary practice focus on Professional Liability Defense.

2012’s Colorado Super Lawyers edition also includes the fourth year of its Rising Stars list. The publisher describes its approach to naming selections to this list as including the same approach it applies to the Super Lawyers list, with a focus on attorneys under 40.

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. TAM shareholder Robert J. Zavaglia, Jr. is named to the list for his work in Professional Liability Defense. This is the fourth year in a row he has received this recognition.
