Fourteen Hare Wynn attorneys have been selected for inclusion in the 2015 list of Super Lawyers. The organization recognizes outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
The four-step selection process is quite rigorous as only 5 percent of attorneys in a state ever make the list. To achieve this an attorney must first be nominated by peers, undergo a twelve point independent research process, and pass through peer evaluation all before the final step of selection.
Leon Ashford, Mike Ermert, John Haley, Scott Powell, Jim Pratt, Shay Samples, Bruce McKee, Don McKenna, Matt Minner and Jamie Moncus have all been honored on this prestigious list for a minimum of three consecutive years.
Hughston Nichols, Jason Earley, Brian Vines and Ashley Peinhardt have all been recognized by other Super Lawyers as Rising Stars. To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. While up to 5 percent of attorneys in a state are named Super Lawyers, only 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars.
Super Lawyers Magazine will feature this list and the profiles of each attorney selected, and issues will be sent to attorneys in the state or region as well as the ABA-accredited law school libraries.
