Super Lawyers Honors McGuireWoods Partners in Baltimore Office

February 8, 2008

Five McGuireWoods’ lawyers have been named Maryland Super Lawyers 2008 in a recent study by Law & Politics magazine. The findings are published in the January 2008 edition of the publication’s Baltimore magazine.

As part of the selection process, Law & Politics magazine conducts a regional survey of lawyers who have been in practice for at least five years, asking them to nominate the best attorneys they’ve personally observed in action. In addition, the Law & Politics attorney-led research department reviews the nominees’ credentials based on a set of evaluation criteria, including confirmation of their license and any history of disciplinary action (which would remove them from consideration). To ensure a diverse and well-balanced list, the research staff considers factors such as firm size, practice area and geographic location.

The following McGuireWoods partners were named as Super Lawyers 2008:

  • Alan C. Cason, Bonds, Government Finance
  • Ava E. Lias-Booker, Business Litigation
  • Patrick M. Shelley, Real Estate
  • Douglas M. Topolski, Employment & Labor
  • Ernest G. Wilson, Bonds, Government Finance
