2016 Mid-South Lawyers and Rising Stars List Includes Outstanding Attorneys with High-Degree of Recognition and Professional Achievement


Nashville, Tenn.—(Nov. 8, 2016) The 2016 Mid-South Super Lawyers ratings of outstanding lawyers were released today, and four Spicer Rudstrom PLLC attorneys were included. Two were named as Mid-South Super Lawyers, while another two were included as Mid-South Rising Stars.

“Our attorneys take great pride in having a thorough understanding of our client’s needs, whether in their business activities or in litigation and in working with our clients to reach their objectives while minimizing their risk in doing so,” said Marc O. Dedman, managing partner of Spicer Rudstrom PLLC. “It is an honor that our peers have chosen four of our attorneys for these awards. We are grateful to them for observing and recognizing the work and passion behind what our team of attorneys undertakes.”

Mid-South Super Lawyers are selected through a multi-phased process, which includes independent research, peer nominations, and evaluations. The list is produced by Super Lawyers, a national rating service that includes more than 70 practice areas. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. No more than 5 percent of attorneys in each state are named to the Super Lawyers list.

Super Lawyers also selects attorneys to be included in its Rising Stars list, which is compiled using the same requirements and selection process as the Super Lawyers list. To be eligible, however, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or have been in practice for no more than 10 years. No more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state are named to the Rising Stars list.

The two Mid-South Super Lawyers are:

  • Newton Anderson, Workers’ Compensation
  • Brian S. Duffy, Employment Litigation Defense
