Super Lawyers – a division of Thomson-West-Reuters – This attorney rating directory listings are provided by local peer surveys. Those lawyers (in all practice areas) with multiple, successive top attorney ratings achieve Super Lawyers status. For younger, top-ranked attorneys, under age 40, the Rising Star designation is the highest ranking possible, and Cory Yager, the partner of Mr. Head, has earned six straight Rising Star designations from Super Lawyers. Partner Larry Kohn is also named as a Super Lawyer for 2017-2022. Bubba Head has been named in every iteration of Georgia Super Lawyers, beginning in 2004.

Mr. Head has been named to ALL THREE of the above lawyer rating sites, plus numerous other national attorney ranking sites like Of all the recognition and awards he has received, one stands out as being very special.
