Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 15, 2010
James "Skip" Sullivan, an attorney in the Atlanta-based Chestney Law Firm, has been recognized by Georgia Super Lawyers Magazine as a "Rising Star" for 2010.
Attorneys from the Chestney Law Firm represent clients accused of DUI and related traffic offenses.
Sullivan, who is a former Assistant District Attorney in the Rockdale Judicial Court and has been in private practice with the Chestney Law Firm since 2006, was selected by his peers as a Super Lawyer Rising Star. This designation is limited to no more than 2.5% of the attorneys in the state of Georgia.
Sullivan follows in the footsteps of four associates at the Chestney Law Firm who have been selected as Rising Stars or Super Lawyers by the magazine. Chestney himself was recently recognized as a SuperLawyer in DUI defense for the seventh straight year, a feat shared by only one other lawyer in Georgia - another former Chestney associate himself.
"I'm very proud of Skip for this well-deserved recognition, which places him in excellent company with a line of associates at the firm who have achieved this honor," said Robert Chestney, the firm's founding partner and one of the first few lawyers in the nation to achieve the distinction of being board-certified in DUI defense -- and still one of only four such attorneys in the state of Georgia. "Skip is a gifted lawyer with experience as both a prosecutor and defense counsel, which gives him a valuable perspective on how to zealously represent our clients."
Chestney's firm works exclusively in the areas of DUI defense and related serious traffic offenses, such as vehicular homicide.
The selection process for Georgia Super Lawyers magazine is conducted by the research team at Super Lawyers, which is a service of the Thomson Reuters Legal division based in Eagan, Minn. Each year, Super Lawyers undertakes a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by the attorney-led research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check.
