Robert S. Bernstein Named Pa. Super Lawyer in Bankruptcy & Workout for Fourth Consecutive Year
Pittsburgh, PA, 5/30/07 – Robert S. Bernstein, managing partner of Bernstein-Burkley, P.C., has been named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer for 2007. This prestigious honor is awarded to the top 5 percent of lawyers in Pennsylvania. Bernstein has been honored with the Super Lawyer designation for four consecutive years.
“It is quite an honor to represent Bernstein-Burkley, P.C. in this manner,” Bernstein said. “Our firm works very hard to uphold the highest standards of the practice and to offer innovative, value-added services to our clients.

Achieving Super Lawyer status involves a six-month-long, multi-step process in which Pennsylvania lawyers name the best lawyers they have observed in action over the year. Next, candidates are reviewed by a panel of prominent Pennsylvania attorneys, and finally, by an independent research group also led by attorneys.
The Super Lawyer award is sponsored jointly between Philadelphia Magazine and Law & Politics Magazine.
