Every year, Rising Stars honors the top young lawyers in Georgia as chosen by Georgia Super Lawyers and through the independent research of Law & Politics. Only 2.5 percent of Peach State attorneys are named Rising Stars.
Rising Stars are selected based upon ballots sent to the most recent group of Super Lawyers, which consists of the top five percent of attorneys in the state. Super Lawyers then vote for the best attorneys who fit the award’s age and experience criteria.
