February 21, 2013

Atlanta, Ga. — Smith Moore Leatherwood attorneys J. Robert Persons and Robert B. Wedge have been named by Georgia Super Lawyers magazine as top attorneys in 2013.  Two additional attorneys, Steven Henry and Jennifer Pritzker Sender, have been honored as Georgia Rising Stars of 2013.  Less than five percent of lawyers in Georgia are selected to the exclusive list of Super Lawyers and less than 2.5 percent are named as Rising Stars.

"This honor is especially meaningful to our attorneys because Super Lawyers are nominated by their peers," said Rob Marcus, Chairman of the firm's Management Committee. "It is wonderful to see that they are being recognized within the legal community for their excellent work."
The attorneys have been recognized in the following practice areas:

  • J. Robert Persons– Insurance Coverage
  • Robert B. Wedge – Construction Litigation
  • Steven Henry (Rising Star) – Personal Injury Defense: Products
  • Jennifer Pritzker Sender (Rising Star) – Health Care

Super Lawyers is an independent lawyer rating service that selects attorneys using a rigorous, multiphase rating process. Through peer nominations, evaluations and third party research, exceptional attorneys are selected within each state. Rising Stars are selected by peer nominations of attorneys who are 40 years old or younger, or have 10 years or less of legal experience.
