Four CLG Attorneys Named Legal Elite by Greenville Business Magazine

Carolina Law Group Attorneys | Greenville, SCFour of Carolina Law Group’s attorneys have made the Legal Elite list in Greenville Business Magazine.. Matt Whitehead, Nihar Patel, Mitchell Byrd, and Monty Desai were all nominated, based on the suggestion of their peers.

While being selected for any elite list is an honor, being chosen by one’s peers in the legal field is a valuable way to confirm that an attorney is dedicated to quality and the pursuit of justice. Monty Desai, Mitchell Byrd, Matt Whitehead, and Nihar Patel are four such attorneys, whose work ethic and personal concern for others comes through in everything they do.

According to the magazine’s selection process, over 850 Greenville-area attorneys received emails, and were asked to name the best lawyers in 20 different areas of practice. The respondents were able to nominate lawyers in their own firms, but were also required to nominate one attorney in another firm for each in-firm attorney nomination.

The dedication these four attorneys display to their firm and their clients means a better experience for everyone going through the legal process with The Carolina Law Group. While the legal field can be difficult, our attorneys have continuously demonstrated that they will do what it takes to get the best possible resolution for any case in which they are involved.

Carolina Law Group is very proud of all its attorneys and staff, and with good reason. Seeing four of our attorneys named to Greenville Business Magazine’s Legal Elite list in the Workers’ Comp and Personal Injury categories show that pride is well founded. As all of us at The Carolina Law Group work very hard to be the best in our field. we want to congratulate Monty, Mitchell, Matt, and Nihar for making the Legal Elite list and always painting our law group in such an excellent light.
