February is coming to a close and we wanted to share with you a bit about the editorial subjects for the four magazines released this month: 2015 Georgia Super Lawyers Magazine, 2015 Indiana Super Lawyers Magazine, 2015 San Diego Super Lawyers Magazine and the 2015 North Carolina Super Lawyers Magazine.
The front cover features the story of Atlanta celebrity divorce attorney John C. Mayoue at Mayoue Gray Eittreim. Mayoue’s client roster includes Jane Fonda, Chris Rock and Marianne Gingrich, along with athletes such as Michael Jordan, David Justice, and numerous entertainers in the city’s hip-hop scene: Sean Combs, Usher, and T.I. He’s also repped the wives of Evander Holyfield, Chipper Jones, and Big Boi. Local media routinely describe Mayoue as the “go-to guy in high-profile divorces.” This is invariably followed by the line, “He declined to comment on the case.”
We are honored to tell the stories of amazing attorneys who are making a difference. In this issue, we spoke with some of the first female attorneys in the state about their journey to find their place in North Carolina law. “When I first started, I would go to meetings and I would be the only woman there,” remembers Elizabeth “Betty” Quick, Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice’s first female partner. “Now sometimes…there won’t be any men there.”
In this issue, we feature business litigator Ken Fitzgerald, who represents the San Diego Chicken and moonlights as a trumpet player with the La Jolla Symphony. There’s an old joke: “How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice.” That’s Fitzgerald as both trumpeter and lawyer. “I have never been good at improvising and thinking on my feet at trial,” he says. “I am methodical and meticulous.”
Be sure to check out our “Word for Word” section where we had some fun by posing the question “It you could go back in time and work on any case, what would it be and why”? See one the responses below.
Brown v. Board of Education
“It is hard to believe now, but the decision finding segregation in public schools to be unconstitutional, merely 60 years ago, was unpopular to the majority of the electorate in some parts of the country. If left to the voters, the integration of some public schools likely would have taken many more years or decades to achieve.”
