Partner Selected to Daily Report's "On the Rise" Class of 2015
ATLANTA, GA (July 9, 2015) – Terri Stewart, a partner at Fisher Phillips , has been chosen by the Daily Report, Atlanta’s leading legal newspaper, as a member of the 2015 class of “On the Rise” – the top 40 Georgia lawyers under the age of 40.
Stewart’s selection is the latest in a recent string of professional accomplishments in which she successfully defended a banking client against religious discrimination claims, negotiated a favorable settlement for a trucking industry client, was named partner at Fisher Phillips, and was selected to the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s annual list of the top 40 business professionals under the age of 40.
Her career achievements came amid a busy life away from work, which includes raising a one-year-old daughter and continuing involvement in LEAD Atlanta, Georgia Special Olympics, a homeless organization and a church ministry.
The Daily Report selected Stewart and the other “On the Rise” lawyers based on their making “a difference in the community” and “significant impacts on behalf of their clients.” The newspaper stated that “the people chosen beat out dozens of other nominees, and were selected not only because of what they have achieved but what they likely will accomplish in the future for the legal profession and for their respective communities.”
Daily Report published an article honoring Terri's "On the Rise" selection on September 16, 2015.
