Record Number of HunterMaclean Attorneys Honored as 2009 Rising Stars

Georgia Super Lawyers recently honored eight HunterMaclean attorneys as 2009 Rising Stars, setting a new firm record. All Georgia Rising Stars are 40 or younger or have been in practice for 10 years or less.

HunterMaclean attorneys recognized as 2009 Rising Stars include the following:

Thomas S. Cullen – Business/Corporate Law
Brad Harmon – General Litigation
Shawn Kachmar – Employment and Labor Law
Adam Kirk – Real Estate Law
Bates Lovett – General Litigation
Colin McRae – Transportation/Maritime Law
Christopher Smith – Business Litigation
Tim Walmsley – Real Estate Law

The list of Georgia Rising Stars, which represents more than 60 practice areas, will be published in Atlanta magazine and in a special issue of Georgia Super Lawyers: Rising Stars, which is mailed to every attorney in the state.

“It is indeed an honor for eight of our top young attorneys to be selected as Rising Stars,” said John Tatum, managing partner at HunterMaclean. “This recognition is certainly well-deserved for each of these hard-working individuals.”

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 typically 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 age and experience criteria.
