Super Lawyers names area’s ‘Rising Stars'




Thirty-six members of the Chattanooga Bar Association made the list of Super Lawyers’ Mid-South Rising Stars for 2018.

Super Lawyers is a nationwide rating service that utilizes a selection process consisting of independent researchers, peer review nominations and evaluations to rate lawyers from more than 70 practice areas.

To attain Super Lawyer status, attorneys must first be nominated by their peers in Tennessee and then make it through a multi-phase process that trims the list to five percent of the state’s attorneys.

In addition, Rising Stars must be younger than 40 and have practiced law less than 10 years. Only 2.5 percent of attorneys in the Midsouth receive the Rising Star distinction.

“Selection to the Rising Stars list provides third-party validation of an attorney’s practice, grows the attorney’s referral network and influences consumer hiring decisions,” Super Lawyers states.

Here are the CBA’s Rising Stars for 2018:
