Collins & Lacy, P.C. has almost tripled the number of its attorneys named to the 2013 South Carolina Super Lawyers® and South Carolina Rising Stars® list. Fourteen attorneys with the statewide business defense firm are included in the 2013 list. That means 50 percent of Collins & Lacy’s attorneys have been selected for this esteemed honor. Last year, five attorneys were on the list. The lawyers represent each of Collins & Lacy’s four statewide offices, and they represent a diverse range of practice areas.

“The growth of Collins & Lacy’s selection in this prestigious listing is exciting for both our firm and clients,” said managing partner Mike Pitts, who is a repeat Super Lawyers honoree. “Our expansion in size and legal diversity reflects the success of Collins & Lacy’s mission to meet the diverse, growing needs of the Palmetto State businesses and citizens.”
