Rivers J. Morrell, III Named “Lawyer of Distinction” for 2016

Lawyers of DistinctionUnited States Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger predicted 35 years ago that America was “turning into a society overrun by hordes of lawyers, hungry as locusts”. At that time there were 450,000 lawyers in the United States. As of 2015, there were roughly 1.3 million licensed lawyers in the United States according to the American Bar Association. An additional 40,000 law students graduating every year in the United States only serves to further inflate this growing bubble.

The Lawyers of Distinction is recognized as the fastest growing community of distinguished lawyers in the United States.  Membership is limited to the top 10% of attorneys in the United States.  Members are invited based upon objective evaluation of an attorney’s qualifications, license, reputation, experience, and disciplinary history.
