Edward “Russ” McNees has been named to Mid-South Super Lawyer magazine’s “Rising Star” list. This marks the third consecutive year for Mr. McNees. The “Rising Stars” list is comprised of the top 2½ percent of attorneys 40 years old or younger and practicing in the three-state region of Mississippi, Arkansas, and Tennessee.
The selections for Super Lawyers are made by the research team, which is a service of the Thomson Reuters, Legal division based in Eagan, Minn. Each year, the research team at Super Lawyers undertakes a rigorous multiphase section process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by the attorney-led research staff, and a good-standing and disciplinary check. The Super Lawyers staff searches for lawyers who have attained honors, results or credentials, which indicated a high degree of peer recognition or professional competence. The staff identifies these by reviewing proprietary listings of more than 150 database and online sources, as well as national and local trade publications.
