They join about 5 percent of the lawyers in the state given that title after evaluations by a research team at Super Lawyers, a service of the Thomson Reuters Legal Division in Eagan, Minn.
The selection process includes a statewide survey of lawyers, evaluation of candidates by the
attorney-led research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing
and disciplinary check.
In 2003, Nelson, a Sequim resident, was the first lawyer on the North Olympic Peninsula to receive the “super lawyer” title.

Boyd, her partner in the law firm of Nelson Boyd, is a member of the board of governors of the Washington State Association for Justice. He is licensed to practice law in both Ohio and Washington.
He also is a national trial consultant and owner of Boyd Trial Consulting. He has been named a Super Lawyer every year since 2012.
