Press Releases

Pope Flynn has received two Tier 1 metropolitan rankings in the practice area of Public Finance—one for Columbia, SC, and one for Charlotte NC—from The Best Lawyers in America®.  In addition, Pope Flynn has received its first national ranking, a Tier 3, in Public Finance. Best Lawyers® collaborates with U.S. News & World Report to rank more than 10,000 U.S. law firms by practice area and collects data from client and lawyer evaluations, peer reviews from leading attorneys, and review of firm-submitted information.

To be eligible for a Best Law Firms® ranking, a firm also must have at least one individual lawyer included in the annual Best Lawyers peer-review ranking.  Pope Flynn has two such attorneys recognized by Best Lawyers in the area of Public Finance law: Margaret Pope, who has been listed in Best Lawyers for 10 years; and Joe Lucas, who has been listed in Best Lawyers since 2005.

“We are pleased to receive recognition from our peers in public finance, as well as a national, legal peer-review publication,” says Belton Zeigler, managing partner of the firm.  “The addition of another Tier I metropolitan ranking, as well as a national ranking, mirrors the rapid growth we have experienced since our founding four years ago. But we are most honored to know that our ranking has occurred in part because of the positive evaluations that our clients offered.  It is gratifying that my colleagues have earned the trust of so many leaders in cities, towns, special purpose districts, and public entities around South and North Carolina.”
