Family law attorney Manisha P. Patel was honored as one of North Carolina’s top lawyers for family law in 2020, earning the Legal Elite distinction as published by Business North Carolina magazine. Since 2002, the statewide publication has been honoring North Carolina attorneys for outstanding performance in various business-related categories. Winners are not selected by the magazine’s editors but only by licensed attorneys from across the state. All active NC lawyers are given the opportunity to choose other NC attorneys they believe to be the best in their respective areas of practice.
In addition, Patel was also named a Super Lawyers Rising Stars for 2020. Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent 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 Rising Stars designation is only available to attorneys under age 40 or in practice for less than 10 years. Only 2.5% of all attorneys are selected for this particular honor each year.
“I am very thankful to be chosen by my peers as a Legal Elite in Family Law for a third year as well as a Super Lawyers Rising Star for 2020,” says Patel. “It is truly an honor to be recognized for my work as a family law attorney in North Carolina by my peers
