Akim Anastopoulo, principal of Anastopoulo & Clore, LLC, Attorneys at Law, has been honored by the Charleston City Paper as Best Lawyer/Law Firm in the periodical's "Best of Charleston 2007" Readers Poll for the 3rd consecutive year. In addition to running a highly successful law practice, Anastopoulo stars as Judge "Extreme" Akim on the reality courtroom television series "Eye for an Eye".

"I am thrilled to receive this award from the City of Charleston for my service and commitment to the community," said Anastopoulo on being chosen for this distinction. "I have a great deal of respect and admiration for this city and it is an honor to serve, and of course, be recognized by its citizens.

The show is now cleared in 14 of the top 15 markets and 80 percent of the country. Eye for an Eye captures the essence of justice and puts punishment front and center. A non-traditional, no-nonsense, no-holds-barred spectacle of trial and punishment, the syndicated reality courtroom show, breaks ground and takes small claims court to places viewers have never seen. Unlike any other courtroom television program, Eye for an Eye features the powerful and enigmatic Judge "Extreme Akim" sentencing his litigants to "paybacks" with signature punishment episodes. Eye for an Eye stars Akim Anastopoulo, a former State Prosecutor for South Carolina, alongside Sugar Ray Phillips (former middleweight boxing champion of the world) as bailiff. Eye for an Eye delivers a gavel crack unheard of in the canon of American courtroom television.

Eye for an Eye is currently airing nationwide on FOX, The WB, UPN, ABC and CBS affiliates. For more information on the series, or for show time in your area visit
