The National Association of Distinguished Counsel (NADC) has recognized Hugh Donaghue, founding partner of law firm Donaghue & Labrum, as one of the Nation’s Top One Percent of attorneys in the United States.
The NADC’s mission is to highlight attorneys who represent the legal profession with the highest standards of conduct and competence. The organization maintains rigorous standards for inclusion and applies the absolute highest level of selectivity in applying its “Nation’s Top One Percent” category.
The NADC’s Selection Process for the Top One Percent of Attorneys
The nomination and vetting procedures for inclusion in the list of the NADC Nation’s Top One Percent of Attorneys are stringent. Once an attorney is submitted for consideration, NADC researchers undertake an exhaustive research process, considering all available resources on an attorney’s professionalism, conduct, success rates, client satisfaction, peer recommendations, leadership and community involvement, case outcomes, personal standards, and more. Subsequently, a group of independent attorneys and former judges considers each candidate and selects only those who most epitomize the highest ideals of the legal profession.
Mr. Donaghue stated, “It is truly an honor to be recognized as one of the NADC’s top one percent of U.S. attorneys. I am humbled to join my colleagues across the country in upholding the highest standards of professionalism and integrity, which Donaghue & Labrum observes in representing each and every one of our clients.” Mr. Donaghue added, “I will certainly be celebrating this milestone with my colleagues and my family.”
Kathryn Labrum, also a founding partner of the firm, expressed her pride in Mr. Donaghue’s achievement. “We have strong personal relationships with all of our clients, and I believe that each one knows that we give 100 percent for them on a daily basis. However, the recognition of one’s peers and the legal establishment in general holds a special value that gives our clients even more confidence that we are willing and able to do what it takes to seek justice on their behalf. We couldn’t be prouder of Hugh and his accomplishments, including becoming one of the NADC’s top one percent.”
