The law firm of Hardison & Cochran is pleased to announce that two attorneys from its workers’ compensation division, Benjamin T. Cochran and J. Adam Bridwell, have been selected to the 2014 North Carolina Super Lawyers Rising Stars list.
This marks the fifth straight year that Cochran has been named to the Rising Stars list. It is the first time that Bridwell has been selected as a Rising Star.
No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in North Carolina are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor, which recognizes “excellence in practice.”
Cochran and Bridwell are also both Board-Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation Law.
“It’s an honor to be nominated by our peers and selected by Super Lawyers,” said Cochran, who also serves as the Managing Partner of Hardison & Cochran.
“This recognition reflects the dedication and hard work of our entire legal team and the compassionate and professional service that we provide to each and every one of our clients.”
Cochran is a graduate of the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University. In addition to being honored by Super Lawyers, he has been listed as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers of North Carolina. He is the author of “9 Common Mistakes That Can Ruin Your Workers’ Compensation Case and How to Avoid Making Them."
Bridwell also is a graduate of the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University. Like Cochran, he is actively involved with many of the state’s legal organizations, including the North Carolina Advocates for Justice.
Super Lawyers is a rating service of lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent research evaluation and peer reviews by practice area.
