Five attorneys with the Cumberland-based family law firm of Hedgepeth Heredia LLC were recently recognized by their legal peers for excellence in the March 2019 Super Lawyers edition of Atlanta magazine.

Founding partners Jon Hedgepeth and Hannibal Heredia were recognized as Super Lawyers and in the Top 100 attorneys list.

Super Lawyers designates the top five-percent of attorneys in each state. Hedgepeth and Heredia were included in the Top 100 list, an elite group of 100 lawyers – which is less than a half percent – chosen from Georgia’s 32,000 plus attorneys. This is Hedgepeth’s first year and Heredia’s third year on the list.

Partner Jessica Reece Fagan and senior associates Paul Simon and Michaela Mericle were named as Rising Stars.

Rising Stars recognizes the top 2.5-percent of attorneys in each state.

Heredia was also been included in Georgia Trend’s 16th Annual Legal Elite listing. The Georgia Trend Legal Elite listing allows attorneys to recognize their peers for excellence and is open to lawyers throughout Georgia in fourteen practice areas.

Attorneys are not allowed to vote for themselves and may only vote for members of their own firm if they cast an equal or greater number of votes outside their firms. The listings are determined solely by lawyers’ votes. There are nearly 30,000 practicing attorneys in Georgia available for nomination. The listing appeared in the December issue of Georgia Trend.
