White Arnold & Dowd Shareholders Named as 2015 “Super Lawyers”


Birmingham, AL – White Arnold & Dowd P.C. is pleased to announce that six shareholders have been named to the 2015 Alabama Super Lawyers list, and one additional shareholder has been included on the list of 2015 Alabama Super Lawyers Rising Stars. In addition, Managing Lawyer Augusta S. Dowd was named to the Top 50: 2015 Alabama Super Lawyers list as well as the Top 25: 2015 Women Alabama Super Lawyers list.

Attorneys named to the 2015 Alabama Super Lawyers are:

  • Stephen R. Arnold
  • William M. Bowen, Jr.
  • Kitty Rogers Brown
  • U.W. Clemon
  • Augusta S. Dowd
  • J. Mark White

Shareholder Hope S. Marshall was named as a 2015 Alabama Super Lawyers Rising Star.

U.W. Clemon was featured in the Alabama Super Lawyers magazine cover article, “We’ve Come a Rather Remarkable Way,” an oral history of civil rights and the African-American bar.   “We are not in an environment of pure fairness, but we are definitely much improved,” noted Clemon, who, as the article noted, filed key civil rights lawsuits early in his career. “We’ve come a rather remarkable way here in Alabama, in terms of affording meaningful job opportunities for black lawyers.”

Super Lawyers rates outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in Alabama are selected by the research team for selection as Super Lawyers, and no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in Alabama 40 years old or younger or who have been in practice for 10 or fewer years are selected as Rising Stars. The Alabama Super Lawyers and Rising Stars will be listed in the May 2015 Alabama Super Lawyers magazine and Business Alabama magazine.
