Our team at Metzger Wickersham is proud to announce the inclusion of one
of our own, Attorney Rebecca Bailey, in the 2019 Super Lawyers Rising
Stars list. Inclusion in this list is highly selective and is only awarded
to attorneys who show outstanding skill and promise in their respective
legal areas. We are excited to see Attorney Bailey recognized for her
excellent work in Pennsylvania personal injury law, especially as it pertains
to her dedication to our firm’s clients.
Super Lawyers is a Thomson Reuters rating service designed to identify
the most distinguished attorneys across 70 different practice areas. Attorneys
are chosen annually based on a multiphase selection process, which addresses
12 different indicators of achievement—both through peer evaluations
and independent research.
First, attorneys are nominated by their peers, third-party feedback, or
are identified by the Super Lawyers independent research team. Next, the
research team grades each nominee based on their professional achievement,
education, verdicts and settlements, awards, special licenses or certifications,
pro bono work, scholarly lectures and articles, experience, representative
clients, and more. Once the strongest candidates have been identified,
a peer review board submits their evaluations.
In the final selection process, only 5% of practicing attorneys are selected
to the Super Lawyers list, and only 2.5% are chosen for Rising Stars.
The Rising Stars list is only for attorneys who are 40 years old or younger,
or have been practicing law for 10 years or less.
Attorney Rebecca Bailey has been practicing law since she earned her Juris Doctor in 2015. Prior
to becoming a lawyer, she worked as a workers’ compensation paralegal,
which provided her with invaluable hands-on experience. She now practices
workers’ compensation law and personal injury law, especially cases
dealing with car accidents, truck accidents, premises liability, and dog
bite accidents. During her spare time, Attorney Bailey also volunteers
with various charities in the Pennsylvania area, including the Homeless
Outreach Project, Homeless Veterans Stand Down, and the Bethesda Mission
