Ten attorneys with Bouhan Falligant were recently recognized as 2017 Georgia Super Lawyers and Rising Stars. Both awards recognize the best of the best — defined by a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement — within their individual practice areas.

The Georgia Super Lawyer recognition is awarded annually to the top five percent of attorneys in the state. The honor is based on independent research, peer review and professional achievement. Atlanta Magazine features the attorneys in its February 2017 issue.

This award is presented to no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state who meet the same criteria as Super Lawyers. Rising Stars are either 40 years old or younger or have been in practice 10 or fewer years.
