Cunningham Bounds, LLC is pleased to announce that Robert T. Cunningham, Joseph M. Brown, Jr. and Gregory B. Breedlove have been named to Lawdragon’s “500 Leading Lawyers in America 2010.” The three partners are the only lawyers selected from Mobile and comprise one third of the attorneys named from Alabama. During their legal careers, Mr. Cunningham, Mr. Brown and Mr. Breedlove have obtained numerous multi-million dollar jury verdicts and settlements for their clients. They are currently representing individuals and businesses along the Gulf Coast injured by the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Lawdragon 500 selection process takes more than six months, commencing with online balloting, followed by research and review of more than 25,000 candidates annually in every area of practice and in every state. These candidates are narrowed down to the ‘finalists’. Lawdragon 500 then subjects these finalists to a deep and rigorous peer review, looking only for those lawyers who have gained near universal respect from other top lawyers, clients and judges and who have handled cases that significantly impacted the law. Lawdragon combines stringent objective criteria with subjective wisdom gained through in-depth interviews with the nation’s legal and judicial leaders.

Lawdragon is the nation’s leading online legal media company, founded in 2005 by a group of award-winning legal journalists and attorneys. Lawdragon produced its first guide to the nation’s 500 leading lawyers in Fall 2005, and has been publishing online and in print ever since. This year’s magazine will be distributed online as well as released in print at a ‘First Monday in October’ celebration in New York later this year.
