TAM shareholders, associates selected Colorado Super Lawyers, Rising Stars.

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 2011 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.

2011’s Colorado Super Lawyers edition also includes the third 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. TAMB shareholder Robert J. Zavaglia, Jr. is named to the list for his work in Professional Liability Defense. This is the third year in a row he has received this recognition.
