It’s our pleasure to again this year congratulate our colleagues at Longleaf Law on being recognized among the top attorneys in North Carolina and nationwide.
Penn Clarke and Jamie McCaskill have been selected as 2021 Legal Elite attorneys by Business North Carolina in the Real Estate category and Ben Worley in the Construction category. Clarke was also recognized in the Young Guns category.
Every year, active members of Business North Carolina are invited to vote for their colleagues, with emphasis placed on votes cast from outside each individual’s firm. For 2021, 982 lawyers have been selected as Legal Elite, representing less than 5% of the state’s entire active attorney population. Being chosen by their peers out of such a large selection of lawyers within our state is a real honor for these talented attorneys.
Additionally, Penn Clarke has been named as a Rising Star for 2021 by Super Lawyers, along with Michael Birch who has received this award for a seventh year in a row. Other Super Lawyers awards go to Cindy Oliver, Carlton Younger, Ben Worley and Jamie McCaskill.
Super Lawyers, unlike Legal Elite, evaluates attorneys all across America and measures candidates on 12 points reflecting professional achievement and peer recognition in a patented multi-phase selection process.
Please join us in congratulating these attorneys who are leaders in their field!
