Each year, Super Lawyers announces a list of Georgia attorneys for two lists: Super Lawyers and Rising Stars. The purpose of these awards is to recognize lawyers who have distinguished themselves in certain legal areas of practice. We are pleased to announce that Jones & Swanson’s very own Attorney Andrew W. Jones has been named a Georgia Super Lawyer again for the year of 2015. Mr. Jones has been voted a Super Lawyer each year since 2009, and received Rising Star acknowledgement in 2005 and 2007 as well. We are pleased that Andrew’s hard work in the legal field has paid off once again.
Rising Stars lists are meant to acknowledge attorneys who have been practicing for less than ten years and fall below the age of 40 that are expected to make a name for themselves in the legal field. These winners are typically active in their legal community and show promise for bright careers.
The award of Georgia Super Lawyer is among the most sought-after and notable legal titles in the legal field. Being awarded the title of Georgia Super Lawyer shows that you have “demonstrated excellence in the practice of law”. Less than five percent of the state’s population of lawyers is awarded this title each year.
The Super Lawyers rating service considers outstanding attorneys from over 70 practice areas. Peer recognition, professional achievement, and legal activity are just a few things considered in the nomination process. Once peer nominations and evaluations are considered, independent research is performed to evaluate each attorney’s selection status. When the final decisions have been made, the selected list of Super Lawyers will be included in Georgia’s Super Lawyers Magazine in March, as well as Atlanta magazine.
At Jones & Swanson, we see involvement in the legal community as an important part of our personal injury practice. Andrew has served in a variety of leadership roles throughout the year, including President of the Cobb County Trial Lawyers Association, Cobb County Bar Association, Cobb County Younger Lawyers Division, and Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia. He has been awarded not only the title of Georgia Super Lawyer, but is AV Preeminent Rated and has an AVVO score of 10/10. In 2014, Andrew was presented with the President’s Award from the GTLA Civil Justice PAC. Before that he received the Ross Adams Younger Lawyer Award (2002) and the Cobb County Bar President’s Award (1997). Andrew takes pride in his active status as a Georgia personal injury attorney in the Cobb County community.
Jones & Swanson congratulates Attorney Andrew Jones on this most recent accomplishment and hopes for more milestones to come in the future.
