It’s a Major Award!…

“It’s indescribably beautiful!.. It reminds me of the Fourth of July!”

Well…… we may be slightly exaggerating on the excitement behind the awards that we have received this year. However, being almost as excited as when little Ralphie first saw the “soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window” is not an overstatement.

I imagine that many of you recognize the movie reference, but for those readers that think we have gone stark raving mad, Ralphie was the star character in the classic Christmas movie “A Christmas Story”

But on a more serious note, we continue to thank our clients and the attorney’s that have recommended us for many of the awards and memberships we have received. We always appreciate hearing from you, please let us know if you have any questions or input.

We would like to share with you our recent awards that we are proud to have received.

Attorney Jon Welborn achieved the Lead Counsel Rating in Drunk Driving Defense based upon his profound legal experience, solid reputation, and demonstrated ethics.

The Lead Counsel Rating was established in 1997 as a quality assurance tool consumers and businesses can use to quickly and easily evaluate a prospective attorney’s ability and credibility. When you see the Rating, you can be assured the attorney has met strict qualification standards that include:

  • Professional Experience
  • Peer Recommendations
  • Spotless Disciplinary Record

Furthermore, an annual review is conducted in order to confirm an attorney’s eligibility for the Rating. Should the attorney no longer meet eligibility standards, the Rating is immediately revoked.
