Atlanta Trial Attorneys Geoff Pope and Marc Howard Named 2014 Georgia Super Lawyers
ATLANTA, GA- Trial lawyers Geoffrey Pope and Marc Howard, founders of Atlanta-based law firm Pope & Howard, P.C., were recently named to the 2014 Georgia Super Lawyers® list, an honor that both attorneys have received in previous years. This year, Mr. Howard and Mr. Pope were recognized as some of the top personal injury attorneys in the state, specializing in trucking, aviation, medical malpractice and product-related suits.
“It’s an honor to be recognized with such an outstanding group of attorneys,” said Pope, who has been named a Georgia Super Lawyer each year since 2007. “The 2014 Georgia Super Lawyers publication provides a list of incredibly talented legal professionals, and Marc and I are humbled to be included among them.”
Super Lawyersis a nationally acclaimed rating service that recognizes outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas. Using a patented selection process, Super Lawyers selects attorneys based on peer nominations and evaluations as well as rigorous third party research. Each potential candidate is carefully evaluated on 12 different factors of peer recognition and professional achievement.
Super Lawyers has a patented selection process that begins with the creation of the candidate pool, which consists of lawyers nominated by their peers, or identified during the research phase. Then, potential Super Lawyers are carefully evaluated based on criterion such as verdicts and settlements, experience, honors and awards, and special certifications. In the final step, also referred to as the “Blue Ribbon Review,” each candidate is evaluated by acclaimed peers of the same practice area.
The goal of the Super Lawyers three-step process is to create a comprehensive and varied listing of outstanding attorneys across the nation that can be used as a resource for potential clients and fellow lawyers alike.
“Because peer evaluation is such a critical step of the process, Geoff and I are both very honored to be named Georgia Super Lawyers,” added Howard, who has received the Georgia Super Lawyers honor every year since 2010.
Both Pope and Howard are well-known and highly respected members of the Atlanta legal community. Geoff Pope previously served as president of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, and Marc Howard currently serves on the Board of Governors for the State Bar of Georgia.
