According to North Carolina Lawyers Weekly, the “Power List,” which is making its debut this year, “recognizes the most respected and accomplished attorneys in an area of practice—a lawyer you might call yourself if you needed legal help in his or her field.”
The lawyers who made the list were nominated by their peers. The criteria for nomination included lawyers who are experts in their field, know the law their clients will encounter, are models of professionalism and collegiality in their interactions, and think creatively to offer all options for their clients.
Listed lawyers are those to whom other lawyers refer clients because of their expertise. Congratulations, Kristen!
