AUGUSTA, Ga., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The 2014 list of top rated attorneys in Georgia as published in the March, 2014 issue of Atlanta Magazine includes Michael Waddington of Augusta, Georgia. This distinction is given to only a very small percentage of Augusta's attorneys each year.
Attorneys are only considered for inclusion in the list of top rated attorneys if they have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement across 12 indicators.

Only attorneys who can be retained by the general public are considered. Honorees are selected annually for each state and practice area.
