CHARLESTON, SC – April 23, 2014 – Wall Templeton & Haldrup congratulates shareholders Mark H. Wall and Morgan S. Templeton for their selection as 2014 South Carolina Super Lawyers, and Shareholders William “Trey” W. Watkins, Jr.  and Graham P. Powell for their recognition as 2014 South Carolina Rising Stars.

Super Lawyers is a multi-phased rating service that combines peer nominations and evaluations with third party research to select the top 5 percent of attorneys in the state.  Each candidate is elected based upon twelve indicators. After nomination, a “blue ribbon review” groups and rates each candidate by practice area and firm size.

Rising Stars are nominated by peers who have observed candidates’ professional achievements firsthand.  A candidate must be 40 years old or younger or have been practicing law for ten years or less.  The attorneys with the highest totals based on twelve indicators of peer evaluation and professional accomplishment are named Rising Stars and represent the top 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state.
