The Carolina Law Group Attorneys Named to 2018 Legal Elite of the Upstate
For the fourth year in a row, attorneys from The Carolina Law Group have been named to the Legal Elite of the Upstate List by Greenville Business Magazine. Mitchell K. Byrd, Jr. was listed among the elite for Workers’ Compensation Law and Matthew Whitehead was listed among the elite for Personal Injury Law in the August 2018 issue.
The Legal Elite of the Upstate is an exclusive list that recognizes attorneys who do exceptional work in their respective fields. Candidates are nominated by their peers, and finalists are chosen by votes of area attorneys. Attorneys may nominate an attorney from their own firm if they also nominate an attorney outside the firm, according to the magazine.
In 2017, Mitchell K. Byrd, Jr. was recognized on the list for Workers’ Compensation Law, Nihar Patel for Criminal Law, and Matt Whitehead for Personal Injury Law, also garnering the most votes within that competitive category. They had previously been recognized in both 2016 and in 2015, when attorney Monty Desai was also named to the list.
Being named to Legal Elite of the Upstate is one of several honors received by the attorneys of The Carolina Law Group since the firm was founded in 2011. Monty Desai, Nihar Patel, and Matt Whitehead are lifetime members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, reserved for attorneys who have achieved a trial verdict, award, or settlement of $1 million or more, and they have also been named Super Lawyer Rising Stars. Monty and Nihar have been listed as National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 in South Carolina. Monty was also recognized by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys as ranking amount the Top 10 Under 40 for excellence in the field of personal injury in 2015.
