Attorney Manisha P. Patel Earns Legal Elite and Super Lawyers Distinction

Family law attorney Manisha P. Patel, was honored as one of North Carolina’s top lawyers for family law in 2019, earning the Legal Elite distinction as published by Business North Carolina magazine.  Since 2002, the statewide publication has been honoring North Carolina attorneys for outstanding performances in various business-related categories.  Winners are not selected by the magazine’s editors but only by licensed attorneys from across the state.  All active NC lawyers are given the opportunity to choose other NC attorneys they believe to be the best in their respective areas of practice.

In addition, Patel was also named a Super Lawyers Rising Stars for 2019.  Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The Rising Stars designation is only available to attorneys under age 40 or in practice for less than 10 years. Only 2.5% of all attorneys are selected for this particular honor each year.

“I am very thankful to be chosen by my peers as a Legal Elite in Family Law for another year as well as a Super Lawyers Rising Star for 2019,” says Patel.  “It is truly an honor to be recognized for my work as a family law attorney in North Carolina.”

Manisha P. Patel earned her Juris Doctor from Elon University School of Law and holds bachelor’s degrees in both economics and history from Virginia Tech. With a focus on family law, Patel started her solo practice in November 2018 after spending over six years in private practice.
