MESA, Ariz., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- JacksonWhite shareholders Michael Pruitt, Jared Everton, and Jeremy Geigle have been named as Southwest Super Lawyers and Rising Stars honorees as prominent and up-and-coming attorneys in Arizona for 2014. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in Arizona are selected by the Super Lawyers research team to receive these honors annually.
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selection method consists of a multi-phase process including a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. Factors such as firm size, practice area, geographic location, and the attorney's standing with the state licensing agency are also considered. The Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers magazines and in leading city and regional magazines across the country.
Mr. Pruitt has been representing employers and employees alike for many years in the state of Arizona, litigating matters involving compensation laws, employment agreements, wrongful termination, and discrimination in the workplace. "Being named to the Southwest Super Lawyers list for the second year in a row is very humbling, and I am grateful to those who have chosen to recognize my work," Mr. Pruitt states.
Mr. Everton represents individuals and families who have been harmed by the negligence of corporations, hospitals, schools, and other entities. Additionally, Mr. Everton assists people across the nation in applying for and receiving Social Security disability benefits. Mr. Everton has been named a Rising Stars honoree for three consecutive years. "I am grateful to have received this recognition. This honor speaks to the quality of the team I am surrounded by. We love helping people," notes Mr. Everton.
Mr. Geigle is an advocate for Arizonans facing felony and misdemeanor charges, and is dedicated to ensuring his clients' rights are protected before a court of law. "I am extremely honored to have been named a Rising Stars honoree for 2014 and look forward to working towards inclusion on the Super Lawyers list in the future," says Mr. Geigle.
