Super Lawyers Highlights Top Attorneys in South Carolina

Apr 21, 2016

Eagan, Minn. — Super Lawyers, the Thomson Reuters lawyer rating service, has announced the 2016 South Carolina Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists. These two lists are comprised of outstanding attorneys who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes nominations, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

The 2016 South Carolina Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists are published within:

  • The South Carolina Super Lawyers Magazine distributed to more than 7,500 lawyers in South Carolina and the ABA-accredited law school libraries.
  • a special section in Columbia Living devoted to selected attorneys reaching more than 208,000 readers.
  • the online attorney directory

We would like to congratulate those attorneys that were selected to a 2016 Colorado Super Lawyers Top List, awarded to those who have received the most total points earned during the selection process:

In this magazine, you'll read about how Robert and Susan Rosen have spent decades uplifting the city of Charleston. At quick glance, they seem an unlikely couple. Jewish and a third-generation Charlestonian, Robert's a divorce lawyer who thrives on the drama of family law and writes history books. Episcopalian and a New England native, Susan revels in connecting the dots in plaintiffs' lawsuits, especially medical malpractice cases. His animated storytelling consumes the oxygen in a room, while she responds quietly but firmly.

Together, they make up the Rosen Law Firm, have been married for 33 years and are "cherished" citizens of Charleston, says Joe Riley, the city's legendary, recently retired mayor.

The Rosens try not to bring work home with them or work together on cases, but occasionally bend on both. "When there is a big issue, we do lean on each other to discuss issues to solve problems," says Susan. "We both have a lot of respect for the other's experience and opinion, so it actually works out well. The positive side of working together and living together is that we can discuss and resolve issues related to cases without violating any confidentiality."
