ATLANTA, March 8, 2016 – Jon Hedgepeth, Hannibal Heredia, and Rebecca Crumrine Rieder, the founding partners of Hedgepeth, Heredia & Rieder, and attorney Ashley Sawyer have all recently been recognized by their legal peers for excellence.

Atlanta Magazine’s Super Lawyers

Founding partners Jon Hedgepeth, Hannibal Heredia and Rebecca Crumrine Rieder were all included on Atlanta magazine’s Super Lawyers 2016 list.

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. Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor. The listing appears in the March issue of Atlanta magazine.
