Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) April 19, 2017 -- Four attorneys from Atlanta-based Hill, Kertscher & Wharton, LLP were recently recognized for excellence in the practice of law in the Georgia edition of Super Lawyers Magazine. Steve Hill, Doug Kertscher and John North were named to the list of Super Lawyers, an honor reserved for 5% of the state’s practicing attorneys. Martha Decker was selected to the list of Rising Stars for the 4th consecutive year, an honor given to only 2.5% of lawyers under the age of forty or practicing for less than ten years.
Super Lawyers awards are some of the most respected among attorneys due to the rigorous selection process. Lawyers are first nominated by their peers, and then researched by the Thompson Reuters editorial team in areas related to peer recognition and professional achievements. The final selection criterion includes review by a panel of highly-credentialed attorneys practicing in the same area of law.
HKW’s Co-founding partner, Doug Kertscher, believes the honor represents more than the skill and commitment of these four firm members. “Our success on behalf of clients is due in large part to the team concept we’ve implemented at the firm,” said Kertscher. “It’s common for us to have several attorneys working on one matter, alongside very experienced support staff. Legal representation is taken to the next level when you can draw on exceptional resources, and it’s even better when those resources are right down the hallway.”
This has been a strong year for Hill, Kertscher & Wharton, LLP with respect to third party recognition of their work. In December, all three named partners were recognized as the state’s Legal Elite by Georgia Trend Magazine, an honor based entirely on the voting of other members of the Bar. Earlier in 2017, partners Steve Hill and John North were selected to the Intellectual Asset Management Patent 1000, a list of the world’s leading patent law attorneys, and North and Kertscher were included in the current year’s list of Best Lawyers in America.
