Four Ainsman Levine Attorneys Named Super Lawyers for 2024

Each year, Super Lawyers — a rating service founded by Thomson Reuters — recognizes and lists the top lawyers in each state. This year, Ainsman Levine, LLC is proud to announce that four of our attorneys have made the list: two as Super Lawyers and two as Rising Stars.

Erin K. Rudert and Richard C. Levine: 2024 Super Lawyers

To earn the designation of Super Lawyer, an attorney must be part of the top 5% of all attorneys in the state. The selection process is an extensive one that includes independent research from Super Lawyers as well as peer ratings and recommendations.

Top attorneys are chosen based on 12 indicators of professional achievements and recognition from their peers. These indicators include verdicts or settlements won, bar/professional activity, lectures and publications, and pro bono or other community-oriented work.

This year, Partner Erin K. Rudert was named a Super Lawyer for the 11th consecutive year. She also was named to Top 50: Women Pennsylvania Super Lawyers and Top 50: Pittsburgh Super Lawyers. Ms. Rudert was previously named a Rising Star from 2010 to 2013, and her first year on the Super Lawyers list — as well as the year she joined us at Ainsman Levine, LLC — was 2014. Her practice primarily focuses on personal injury law.

Partner Richard C. Levine was also named a Super Lawyer — this is his 14th consecutive year on the list. He was also named to Top 50: Pittsburgh Super Lawyers. Mr. Levine’s practice largely focuses on general personal injury law, although he also assists clients with workers’ compensation claims.

Daniel J. Sammel and Brandon Keller: 2024 Rising Stars

Each year, Super Lawyers gives the Rising Star designation to 2.5% of attorneys. This award is limited to attorneys who are under age 40 or who have been practicing law for less than 10 years.

Like the Super Lawyer designation, the Rising Star designation recognizes attorneys who excel in their careers and are respected by their peers. Achieving these qualifications while still in the earliest years of your career is no easy feat.

Partner Daniel J. Sammel was named a Rising Star for the fourth consecutive year. Mr. Sammel’s practice focuses on personal injury law.

Associate Attorney Brandon Keller was also named a Rising Star. This is his eighth consecutive year on the list. Mr. Keller’s practice focuses on civil litigation.

It takes a tremendous amount of talent and dedication to be named a Rising Star or Super Lawyer, and we’d like to congratulate our outstanding attorneys for making the cut.

At Ainsman Levine, LLC, we’re continuously striving to better ourselves and continue to achieve the outcomes our clients deserve. We’d also like to take a minute and thank our clients — without you, we wouldn’t be the firm we are today.
