Durham, North Carolina (PRWEB) January 28, 2012
NC Workers’ Compensation attorney Barry Jennings, a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law and shareholder at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin has been named a 2012 “Rising Star” by North Carolina Super Lawyers magazine for the second year in a row.
While up to five percent of the lawyers in any state are named “Super Lawyers,” by Super Lawyers magazine, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.
To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. Rising Stars undergo a rigorous, multiphase process which combines peer nominations with third-party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made annually on a state by state basis.
The Rising Stars list will be featured in North Carolina Super Lawyers magazine, which will be circulated to various attorneys and ABA-accredited law school libraries across the state. Approximately 19,000 copies of the magazine will be included with The New York Times on Saturday, February 5, 2012. In addition, selected North Carolina attorneys will be in a special advertising feature in the February 2012 issue of Charlotte magazine.
As a North Carolina Workers’ Compensation attorney, Barry Jennings works to help protect the rights of people who were injured while on the job and assist with the Workers’ Compensation process.
“I am honored to be deemed a “Rising Star” not just once, but two years in a row,” Jennings said. “It motivates me to work even harder as a NC Workers’ Compensation attorney.”
Barry Jennings received his J.D. with honors from the University of North Carolina School of Law in 2003 and received his BA, magna cum laude from North Carolina State University in 2000.
