RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Three Raleigh Injury Attorneys from the law firm of Edwards Kirby, LLP have been named to the 2019 North Carolina Super Lawyers list. An annual legal rating service that has been curating its eponymous list since 2006, Super Lawyers has become one of the most trusted resources for consumers with needs that require the representation of highly respected and demonstrably accomplished attorneys.
Founding Partners John Edwards and David F. Kirby, and Partner Bill Bystrynski, have all been included in previous iterations of the Super Lawyers list. Considered among the country's most elite civil trial attorneys, all three Edwards Kirby attorneys selected for inclusion have earned distinction from many other local, legal, and national publications and organizations throughout their careers.
- John Edwards – John Edwards has been widely recognized as one of the nation's most accomplished and respected plaintiffs' trial attorneys. The former U.S. Senator for North Carolina and former 2004 Democratic Vice-Presidential nominee and candidate for U.S. President was selected to the 2019 Super Lawyers list in the areas of Personal Injury - General, and Personal Injury - Medical Malpractice. Over a career dedicated to advocacy and equality, John has secured record-setting results, been hailed in national headlines, and was the youngest member ever inducted into the prestigious Inner Circle of Advocates, an invitation-only organization of the top 100 plaintiff's lawyers in the United States.
- David F. Kirby – David Kirby has spent his career cultivating the respect and reverence of his legal peers and local communities. He has been named to the list of Super Lawyers for 14 consecutive years, and in 2019 was recognized for his work in the areas of Personal Injury - General, Personal Injury - Medical Malpractice, and Personal Injury - Products. Like Attorney Edwards, he is also a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, and with Edwards helped secure the largest personal injury jury verdict in state history for a local family. He is a frequent lecturer, speaker at local high schools, and active member in various community organizations.
- Bill Bystrynski – Bill Bystrynski has been named to the North Carolina Super Lawyers publication every year since the rating service was first established, and was again named to the list in 2019 in the areas of Personal Injury - General, Personal Injury - Medical Malpractice, and Personal Injury - Products. In addition to being named among the AAJ's Top 100 Trial Lawyer in North Carolina, Bill has had two cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, including one case which resulted in the 2013 SCOTUS decision declaring NC's Medicaid law unconstitutional. The ruling allowed thousands of seriously injured individuals to retain more of their settlements from those responsible for their pain and suffering.
Inclusion in Super Lawyers Magazine is a highly sought-after distinction in the professional legal community. Published annually, the listing relies on a patented selection process of peer nominations, independent research, and third-party, peer-panel reviews. Those who make the final list have earned the highest respect from their peers, and have demonstrated the highest standards of professional excellence. No more than 5% of all practicing lawyers are named to the Super Lawyers list.
