Polsinelli congratulates all of our attorneys selected for inclusion in the 2011 Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers. Attorneys from all the major offices of Polsinelli in Missouri and Kansas are represented among the honorees. Only five percent of attorneys in Missouri and Kansas receive this honor.

The following attorneys received further distinction in this year’s Super Lawyers.
  • Chairman Emeritus R. Lawrence Ward was selected in the Super Lawyers list of “Top 10 Attorneys in Missouri.” 
  • Attorneys Roy Bash, Robert A. Henderson, W. Terrence Kilroy, Thomas G. Kokoruda and R. Lawrence Ward are in the “Top 50 Attorneys in Kansas City, Missouri.” 
  • Attorney Robert J. Selsor is listed in the “Top 50 Attorneys in St. Louis.” 
  • Attorneys Jennifer Gille Bacon, Mary Beth Blake, Karen R. Glickstein, Lisa M. Haines, and Lisa A. Weixelman are included in the “Top 50 Women in Missouri and Kansas.” 
Super Lawyers are selected for inclusion by fellow attorneys from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Lawyers cannot nominate themselves and in-firm votes are only counted if they are matched by an out-of-firm nomination. The Rising Star category is for attorneys under 40 who have 10 or fewer years of practice. Thirteen Polsinelli attorneys were selected for inclusion as Rising Stars from two major offices.
