Sheri Jacobs, Anne Martin, Stephen Zralek and Sam McAllester have been named Mid-South Super Lawyers, and Charles Robert Bone has been honored as a Mid-South Rising Star, in the 2011 editions.
Mid-South Super Lawyers and Rising Stars honorees represent the top five percent of lawyers in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi. Selections for the list are based on a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a regional survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by Law & Politics' attorney-led research staff, peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check. The Rising Star designation is awarded exclusively to top lawyers who are 40 years old and younger who have been in practice 10 years or fewer.
Super Lawyers and Rising Stars are considered leaders in their areas of practice: Ms. Jacobs is honored for her skill in environmental and administrative law; Ms. Martin, in employment and business litigation and defense; Mr. Zralek in intellectual property; Mr. McAllester, in real estate, bankruptcy and creditor and debtor rights; and Mr. Bone, in business litigation, personal injury plaintiff, general corporate, and mergers and acquisitions.
