Seven Hull Barrett Attorneys Selected as Georgia Super Lawyers and Rising Stars for 2012

Hull Barrett is pleased to announce that six of the firm’s attorneys have been selected for inclusion into Georgia Super Lawyers® for 2012. In addition, Super Lawyers has chosen one of the firm’s attorneys as a 2012 Rising Star. Only 5 percent of Georgia attorneys are chosen each year for the list of Super Lawyers for attaining a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. No more than 2.5 percent of Georgia attorneys are recognized as Rising Stars, lawyers who are age 40 and younger or who have been practicing for 10 or fewer years.

The selections for these respected lists are made by the research team at Super Lawyers. Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of lawyers from more than 70 practice areas. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-‐phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers magazines and in leading city and regional magazines across the country.

The following Hull Barrett attorneys have been selected as Georgia Super Lawyers and Rising Stars for 2012:

Georgia Super Lawyers
Douglas D. Batchelor, Jr. - Health Care
James B. Ellington - Employment Litigation: Defense
George R. Hall - Civil Litigation Defense
David E. Hudson - Business Litigation
James V. Painter - Personal Injury Defense: Medical Malpractice
Patrick J. Rice - General Litigation

Georgia Rising Stars
Davis A. Dunaway - Construction Litigation

The Super Lawyer distinctions build upon Hull Barrett’s dedication to excellence. Several firm members are peer-rated by Martindale-Hubbell and have been recognized as Best Lawyers in America.
