Morton & Gettys included in 2020 Best Law Firms in America

Morton & Gettys has been named in the top tier in the area of real estate law in the 2020 edition of Best Law Firms, a U.S. News–Best Lawyers® publication that recognizes the top practices in the nation. This is the firm’s fourth consecutive year in the listing.

In addition, the firm was named in Tier 2 among Rock Hill firms in the area of trusts and estates law.

To qualify for Best Law Firms, at least one of the firm’s attorneys must be included in the peer-reviewed Best Lawyers in America. This year, three Morton & Gettys attorneys were thus recognized. The publication named partners John Gettys and Joshua Vann in the area of real estate law, while Joe Raad was recognized in trusts and estates.

“It is gratifying to be recognized yet again by this national publication,” firm co-founder John Gettys said. “It is particularly meaningful to be recognized as a Best Law Firm in America by our peers in the legal profession.”

Best Lawyers in America, which thousands of lawyers and corporations use annually, is regarded as a definitive guide to the legal profession in the United States. Based on confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country, the guide is advertisement-free and no fee is required to be included. All attorneys in the publication are subject to peer review within both their practice areas and their cities. For more information, see
