Cleveland, Ohio – Meghan Connolly, associate attorney at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA, a Cleveland-based law firm, has been selected to the 2018 Ohio Rising Stars list. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by my peers through such a rigorous review process. It aligns with my commitment to providing service for those who cannot advocate for themselves,” says Connolly. “I am proud to further the exceptional reputation Lowe Eklund Wakefield holds in the industry both locally and nationally.”
Connolly obtained her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice at Xavier University and attended law school at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, where she graduated Cum Laude.
