Since 2004, more than 70 McGlinchey Stafford attorneys have received the distinction of being included in Super Lawyers and the publication’s “Rising Stars” lists across the United States. Attorneys in the firm’s Baton Rouge and New Orleans offices offer extensive experience in banking, class action defense, commercial litigation, consumer financial services, bankruptcy, insurance defense, labor and employment, products liability, public finance, corporate matters, regulatory compliance, government relations, intellectual property, and real estate. McGlinchey Stafford’s team includes some of Louisiana’s top attorneys across numerous disciplines as recognized by clients and peers in local and national publications.

Super Lawyers has listed outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement since the publication’s founding in 1991. To be included in a state publication, lawyers are subject to nomination, a peer-review survey by practice area, and independent research on candidates. The top five percent of attorneys in each state, as nominated by their peers, are then reviewed by an independent research team that focuses on professional accomplishments, peer recognition, and community involvement. The “Rising Star” designation recognizes the top 2.5% of lawyers in a given state who are 40 years old or younger, or have been in practice 10 years or less.
