Neuman & Branch named to NC Super Lawyers 2015; Battles Selected as Rising Star

RALEIGH, N.C. – Shanahan Law Group is proud to announce that partners Brandon Neuman and John Branch, III, have been selected as North Carolina Super Lawyers for 2015. Associate Christopher Battles was named to the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list for the second year in a row.

“I’m honored to be selected by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star once again this year,” Battles said. “The fact that Brandon, John, and I have been selected for two consecutive years is a testament to our hard work and the collaborative environment at Shanahan Law Group.”

Attorneys are selected for inclusion on the annual Super Lawyers list through a patented process which combines peer nominations and evaluations with third party research. The overall aim of the Super Lawyers process is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse resource that can be used by both attorneys and consumers seeking legal counsel. Only about five percent of attorneys per state are selected for this honor.

Those selected for inclusion on the Rising Stars list must be 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. No more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in any given state are named to Rising Stars. Neuman and Branch were previously named to the Rising Stars list from 2010–2014, and Battles was selected in 2014 as well.
