MMM Attorneys Named 2015 Super Lawyers, Rising Stars


Atlanta (May 8, 2015) – Super Lawyers, a rating service of outstanding lawyers nationwide, again includes more than two dozen attorneys from Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP. The 2015 rankings include 21 attorneys from a variety of practice areas, as well as ten additional attorneys designated as “Rising Stars.”

Super Lawyers includes top lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The patented selection process includes independent research, as well as nominations and evaluations by the honorees’ professional peers. Each year Super Lawyers invites attorneys to nominate others they’ve seen in action. Its research staff then searches for others who have attained honors, results or credentials. The final selections, which are made after thorough review, represent no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in each state.
