Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor is pleased to announce that Attorney Shana Webb Pennywell has been named a 2018 Georgia Rising Star by Super Lawyers. Only five percent of Georgia lawyers are chosen as Georgia Super Lawyers, and no more than 2.5 percent in the state are recognized as Rising Stars.
Super Lawyers, part of Thomson Reuters, is a research-driven, peer-influenced rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The objective of Super Lawyers is to create a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys to be used as a resource for both referring attorneys and consumers seeking legal counsel.
Attorneys chosen come from more than 70 practice areas and all firm sizes, assuring a credible and relevant list each year. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes:
- Peer nominations
- Independent research by Super Lawyers
- Evaluations from a highly credentialed panel of attorneys
This selection process evaluates lawyers based upon multiple criteria, including professional achievement and peer recognition; honors and awards; firm and bar involvement and leadership; scholarship and professional writings; community service and pro bono activities; and other outstanding achievements. Rising Stars are top up-and-coming attorneys who are no more than 40 years old or who have been practicing for no more than ten years.
Shana stays fully informed of updates in Georgia Law and legal tendencies within family law in an effort to provide each client with the best outcome. She has represented hundreds of clients in Georgia, including those living in Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb, Cherokee, Gwinnett, Paulding, and Bartow counties. Shana remains sensitive to each client’s personal goals.
Whether her clients live by modest means or are multi-millionaires, artists, professional athletes, retail workers, or homemakers, everyone receives Shana’s steadfast commitment to providing exceptional service and aggressive advocacy. While she is a tough and formidable opponent, she believes in maintaining ethical and professional relationships with opposing counsel and parties.
Please join us in congratulating Shana on her selection.
