Yarborough Applegate is honored to again have six of our attorneys named South Carolina Super Lawyers. Additionally, founding partners William Applegate and David Yarborough were once more voted by their peers to be among the top 25 lawyers in South Carolina and the top 10 in Charleston. The annual Super Lawyers list recognizes outstanding lawyers from across the country and of various practice areas.
Each year, Super Lawyers magazine selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process that combines peer nominations and evaluations with independent research. Organized by state and select cities, the final list touts lawyers who have built distinguished careers marked by a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
In addition to Applegate and Yarborough being named Top 25 South Carolina Super Lawyers and Top 10 Charleston Super Lawyers, four other attorneys received Super Lawyers distinctions this year. Partners Douglas E. Jennings and David Lail were named Super Lawyers in the “Personal Injury General: Plaintiff” category. Liam Duffy and Perry Buckner were each named 2022 Rising Stars. This distinction is reserved for attorneys who are either 40 years old or younger, or have been in practice for 10 years or less.
The Super Lawyers list recognizes no more than 5 percent of attorneys in each state, while the Rising Stars list recognizes no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state. We’re thrilled to be presented with this honor, and extend our congratulations to our fellow Super Lawyers across the state and beyond.
