Birmingham, AL. — B-Metro, the Birmingham area’s premier lifestyle magazine, announces its 2019 TopFlight Attorneys lists. This marks the tenth year for the magazine to publish this listing, having worked in previous years with Martindale- Hubbell, Avvo and other sources to build a credible database.
A new feature of the 2019 list is special recognition for 18 Hall of Fame attorneys and 12 Stars of the Bar. These two lists are comprised of outstanding attorneys who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selections were made after local peer nominations through an online survey. Education, reputation, commitment to professionalism and community impact were considered in the selection process. Hall of Fame attorneys have been in practice for 25+ years. Stars of the Bar are being recognized as gaining prominence for their energy, smarts and passion for the law.
The 2019 TopFlight Attorneys list, with Hall of Fame and Stars of the Bar, will be published in full in the March issue of B-Metro. The publication is read by over 60,000 upscale readers per month. The full TopFlight Attorneys online directory be available starting March 1 at: http://b-metro.com/category/top-lawyers/
In addition, the magazine will honor two legal giants who passed away last year, leaving a indelible imprint on our community: The Honorable Helen Shores Lee and Giles Perkins of Adams & Reese.
B-Metro’s Editor, Joe O’Donnell, congratulates the honorees, noting the remarkable influence that Birmingham attorneys have had in the region’s commerce and charitable endeavors.
In addition to the general list in March, B-Metro will also recognize women’s achievements in the legal field in August’s Top Women Attorneys. A sister publication, BHM BIZ, focused on the business community, will also publish the TopFlight Attorneys in its June/ July issue.
