Super Lawyers 2017

The Jones & Swanson family works as a team with the goal of providing the best counsel and outcome for our clients. We are proud to announce that this dedication has led to two Super Lawyers list awards this year.

Attorney Andrew Jones has been selected to the 2017 Super Lawyers list – for the 9th consecutive year. Andrew first received the Rising Star award in 2005, and then again in 2007. 2009 was his first year with a Super Lawyers list selection, and it did not happen without hard work. In fact, only 5% of attorneys in Georgia receive the honor. With hard work and dedication, Andrew has proven for many years why he is one of the top rated personal injury attorneys in the Cobb County area.

The second Super Lawyers list recognition goes to Attorney Chase Swanson for his selection to the 2017 Georgia’s Rising Star list. This is Chase’s first appointment to the Rising Star list and has come after years of hard work and dedication to his clients. Only 2.5% of attorneys in Georgia receive this award every year, so it is a significant honor in the field of law. Chase takes pride in educating clients to the best of his ability, regardless of how much time it takes. He is truly dedicated to helping in any way possible. Chase’s Super Lawyers profile can be viewed at www.superlawyers.com.

The selection process for both Super Lawyes list honors is quite extensive. First there are the nominations, which prohibits the attorneys from nominating themselves, as well as campaigning. They are nominated by a managing partner survey, peers, third party feedback, and by the Super Lawyer research team. Then there is independent research, which evaluates on twelve different factors of professional success and peer acknowledgment. The full twelve indicators are as listed:

  1. Verdicts/Settlements
  2. Transactions
  3. Representative clients
  4. Experience
  5. Honors/Awards
  6. Special licenses/certifications
  7. Position within law firm
  8. Bar and/or professional activity
  9. Pro bono and community service
  10. Scholarly lectures/writings
  11. Education/employment background
  12. Other outstanding achievements

The third step is peer evaluation, and this features the candidates with the highest point totals from the first two steps to then serve on what’s called the Blue Ribbon panel. Then comes the final selection and announcement.

Together, Attorneys Jones and Swanson make a fantastic team with a record of proving their commitment to the field of law. The Jones & Swanson family witnesses their expertise and dedication first-hand and are happy that these honors allow the public to see the same.
