Super Lawyer

Bob Massey has also been named a Super Lawyer in the area of general practice for the years of 2006 and 2007 and in the area of criminal defense in Tennessee each year since 2008 by Mid South Super Lawyers Law and Politics which covers the states of Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi…

The Super Lawyers selection process is a comprehensive, good-faith and detailed attempt to produce a list of lawyers that have attained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have demonstrated a considerable degree of achievement in their field.

In selecting attorneys for Super Lawyers, Law & Politics employs a rigorous, multiphase process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The final published list of Super Lawyers represents no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state. The lists are published annually in state and regional editions of Super Lawyers magazine and in inserts and special advertising sections in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers. All attorneys selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers, regardless of year, can be found on superlawyers.com.

Bob Massey has been included in Mid South Super Lawyers since its inception in 2006 and to be recognized in that manner is “quite an honor” according to Bob.
