The legal team at Chappell, Smith & Arden is proud to announce that partner Mark Chappell has been named as a Super Lawyer for 2018. Mr. Chappell has received this recognition annually since 2009, making this his tenth consecutive year. Graham Newman has also been honored. Mr. Newman has been named a Rising Star by the Super Lawyers organization each year since 2013, making this his sixth consecutive year.
Mr. Chappell recognizes that each client and case are unique, and he handles his work with great insight and responsiveness backed by more than 30 years of experience. Since founding the firm, Mark has handled thousands of cases in personal injury, truck and auto accidents, catastrophic injury, and product liability. He represents only those who have been injured by the negligence, incompetence, or wrongdoing of others. He never represents insurance carriers, employers, or companies.
The dedication, vast experience, insight, and the personal attention Graham Newman provides for his clients are the reasons he has once again been honored as a Super Lawyers Rising Star. Mr. Newman’s work is focused on commercial class actions, contractual litigation, insurance bad faith, and products liability in both state and federal court. His trial court victories have included a $14.5 million insurance bad faith verdict, an $8 million class action judgment, and a $4.75 million products liability verdict.
The highly regarded Super Lawyer honor is awarded after an extensive, patented, multi-phase selection process. It combines independent research with peer nominations and evaluations. Every candidate is individually evaluated on twelve indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made annually, on a state-by-state basis. Honorees represent the top five percent of attorneys in each state. The selection process for Rising Stars is the same, with the exception being that a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less.
