The Daily Report is the primary source for news about the courts and the business and profession of law for lawyers in metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia.
From the Daily Report website:
The people we chose came from a pool of dozens of lawyers nominated by colleagues, co-counsel, mentors, friends and Daily Report staff. We faced the difficult task of selecting just 40. It wasn't easy. Those not chosen remain on our radar screen for future developments as their careers progress.
Our honorees have made significant impacts on behalf of their clients. Some are likely candidates to one day serve the judicial system as judges and justices. Some already have big verdicts under their belts. Others are dealmakers in complex multimillion-dollar transactions. All told, the candidates were selected not only for what they've achieved thus far, but for what we believe they're likely to accomplish for the legal profession and for their respective communities in the future.
Super Lawyers is a Lawyer Rating Service
