Waters & Kraus, LLP partner Jonathan George has been selected for inclusion on the 2017 Virginia Super Lawyers list published in the May 2017 issue of Virginia & West Virginia Super Lawyers Magazine by publisher Thomson Reuters. The list also appears in the May issue of Richmond magazine. Additionally, Mr. George’s name can be found in the attorney directory on SuperLawyers.com. Mr. George is the sixth Waters & Kraus attorney and the firm’s fifth partner to be recognized on a Super Lawyers list so far this year.

“I’m very pleased to see Jonathan awarded for his skillful and exacting execution of the law. Jonathan’s sharp wit, enduring professionalism, and compassion for his clients are just a few of the qualities that make him an extremely talented trial lawyer,” said Peter Kraus, one of Waters & Kraus’ founding partners. “This latest notice of recognition continues to reveal the wealth of talent our legal team puts forth on behalf of our clients.” In April, a Waters & Kraus partner and an associate attorney were named on the Texas Super Lawyers Rising Stars list, and three more Waters & Kraus partners were named on the Southern California Super Lawyers list in February of this year.

Super Lawyers annually conducts a rigorous review process involving peer input and measurement of professional achievement. Only those attorneys who have demonstrated excellence in the practice of law and distinguished themselves in the legal community are selected. No more than five percent of attorneys in the state of Virginia are eligible for the honor each year. Mr. George has been identified by Super Lawyers as such an attorney. Because of this, he is recognized on the 2017 Virginia Super Lawyers list in the category for attorneys who represent plaintiffs in personal injury matters.
