The Whitley Law Firm is proud to announce that Attorney Benjamin H. Whitley has been named to the North Carolina Rising Stars list as one of the top up-and-coming lawyers in North Carolina for 2013. This is a form of recognition that no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the North Carolina can claim to possess. The selection process is handled by the rating service, Super Lawyers, which compiles an annual list of some of the most outstanding legal professionals in their field.
When reviewing each of the potential candidates, they look for qualities like a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement, and then undergo a rigorous multi-phase evaluation process in which they conduct independent research and examine peer reviews. Once this process has been concluded, they select only the most exceptional attorneys, spanning over more than 70 practice areas, for inclusion in their publication.
Each of the attorneys that are included on the Rising Stars list are recognized for their skill as “up-and-coming” legal professionals – meaning that they must either be under the age of 40 or have less than 10 years of experience to be included in the selection process.
Super Lawyers, which is a Thomas Reuters business, first began this rating service in 1991, but their publication, Super Lawyers Magazine, has since grown to be nationally distributed. They have even extended their rating service to United Kingdom this year.
