Gigstad Law Office, LLC is proud to announce that Firm Founder and Overland Park Criminal Defense Attorney Robert Gigstad has been named to the 2017 list of Rising Stars℠ by Missouri / Kansas Super Lawyers® Magazine! Considered one of the most distinguished awards in the legal profession, recognition in Super Lawyers annual list of top attorneys is a testament to an attorney's exemplification of the highest standards of professional achievement, reputation, and client satisfaction. Less than 2.5% of lawyers in the region are named to the list of Rising Stars.
Robert's selection to the 2017 Super Lawyers publication marks the second consecutive year he has been named to the list of Rising Stars. This achievement speaks volumes about his abilities as a proven criminal defense and DUI attorney, as Super Lawyers implements a rigorous, multi-phase selection process when evaluating potential candidates.
In order to be named to the Magazine's annual list, attorneys must be nominated by their legal peers, or by an independent team of researchers employed by Super Lawyers. Nominees are then evaluated based on over a dozen indicators of success – including their representative case results, special certifications, professional activity and memberships, accolades, and more – and are assigned point values. They are then vetted again by a blue ribbon panel of lawyers who practice in the same area of law.
Attorneys with the highest point totals after the independent evaluations and peer-review phases are selected for inclusion into the final list. No more than 2.5% of all active lawyers in the Missouri / Kansas region make the final Super Lawyers Rising Stars list, which is reserved for attorneys who are 40 years or younger or who have been in practice for 10 years or less.
Our firm congratulates Robert on his second consecutive inclusion to the list of Rising Stars! We know that it is a natural result of his commitment to providing the experienced and resourceful representation clients need after being charged with driving under the influence and other serious crimes.
Over the years, Robert has leveraged his experience, as well as certifications in DUI detection and standardized field sobriety testing, to help protect the rights of clients who face serious penalties after being charged with a range of DUI offenses. He also applies his insight to cases involving a variety of misdemeanor and felony charges, and is not afraid to take a case to trial. His work ethic and dedication have proven to be a driving force behind our firm's ability to continually produce the positive resolutions our clients need during difficult times.
