2015 Super Lawyers North Carolina "Rising Stars" list
Congratulations to the four Horack Talley lawyers who were named to the 2015 North Carolina Super Lawyers "Rising Stars" list.
Christopher T. Hood, Family Law
Amy Hunt, General Litigation
Elizabeth "Libby" Johnstone James, Family Law
Keith Nichols, Business Litigation
The selection process for the "Rising Stars" list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, with one exception: 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. All lawyers first go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list, but who meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements, then go through the Rising Stars selection process. While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.
Super Lawyers will publish this year’s survey findings in their North Carolina Super Lawyers magazine, the North Carolina distribution of The New York Times, as well as in the February 2015 issue of Charlotte magazine.
