WASHINGTON, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Lawyers named all four principals of The Employment Law Group® law firm to its 2013 list of outstanding lawyers — an unusual honor for all the owners at a law firm.
Super Lawyers is an independent rating service that honors lawyers "who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement." Its rigorous process includes review by a blue-ribbon panel of attorneys in each practice area.
Super Lawyers recognizes no more than five percent of practicing lawyers each year. On its roster for 2013 are:
- R. Scott Oswald, Managing Principal. Mr. Oswald has helped clients to recover millions of dollars in employment and whistleblower actions. He is the immediate past president of the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association.
- Adam Augustine Carter, Principal. A seasoned courtroom attorney, negotiator, and problem solver, Mr. Carter speaks frequently on legal strategy before groups such as the National Employment Lawyers Association.
- Nicholas Woodfield, Principal. Mr. Woodfield has recovered millions of dollars in unpaid overtime and wages for his clients. He has tried more than 50 trials and is president of the Virginia Employment Lawyers Association.
- David Scher, Principal. A specialist in qui tam, whistleblower and discrimination claims, Mr. Scher has won important victories including a $57 million False Claims Act settlement. He appears frequently in the national media as an expert on employment law.
Super Lawyers also named Subhashini Bollini, an associate at The Employment Law Group, as a "Rising Star" — its designation for the best "up-and-coming" lawyers.
Ms. Bollini represents clients in discrimination, retaliation, and whistleblower claims. She is a board member of the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association.
"This honor is a huge validation of the work our firm has done in recent years," said Mr. Oswald. "And not just for the five lawyers who were named. Behind each of our Super Lawyers stands an equally remarkable team."
This is the second time that Super Lawyers has recognized attorneys from The Employment Law Group. Mr. Carter and Mr. Woodfield appeared on the list in 2012.
