The Super Lawyers Board of Advisors is composed of attorneys who
embody excellence in practice. The board, which provides counsel,
feedback and editorial ideas, includes lawyers from across the country
and of varied firm sizes, who have consistently appeared at the top of the
Super Lawyers lists.
C. James Zeszutek fills us in on his unique
practice representing some of the top
college sports coaches in NCAA-related
matters. And some of Philadelphia’s
biggest legal names share their memories
of the legendary Jim Beasley.
We think this lineup adds to the notable
attorneys we’ve featured in the past.
Thank you for reading. We welcome your
FROM THE PUBLISHER
“How do you do it?” That’s a question we
get asked often. “How do you choose who
to feature in the magazine and on the
cover? Particularly on the cover.”
Well, it’s not easy. There are so many
good lawyers out there with so many
interesting stories, and we can select only a
few each year.
Most obviously, you have to be on the list
to be featured in the magazine.
The longer you’re on the list, the better.
The higher on the list, the better.
We strive for diversity: in practice area,
law firm, city, gender, race. We strive to
create a balanced editorial lineup not only
for this year but against what we’ve done
in previous years. We strive for quality, and
over the years have won several Society of
Professional Journalists awards.
But it would be all for naught if we didn’t
have interesting stories to tell.
In this issue, Abbe Fletman takes us
through her most notable cases, including
the one in which she took on the Bush
administration’s Justice Department. CINDY LARSON
