Local attorney Julius “Jay” McKay II has been deemed one of the best practitioners in the state for the sixth consecutive time.

McKay is the senior partner at McKay, Cauthen Settana & Stubley, P.A., a firm founded by his grandfather Douglas McKay in 1908. He again was included as part of the South Carolina Super Lawyers list announced in April.

“We’re proud to see Jay has been included among South Carolina’s top attorneys for another year. His dedication to the firm and the community is unwavering, and we’re glad to see his work is recognized year after year,” said Mark Cauthen, McKay Firm partner.

Released annually by Thomson Reuters, the Super Lawyers list recognizes the top 5 percent of attorneys who have achieved a high level of recognition for their peers as well as professional achievements. Twelve points of criteria, including independent research, nominations for peers and peer reviews from other attorneys, are considered to determine if someone is eligible.

McKay said the commendation means a great deal to him as he represents a practice started by his own family.

“My family has a long history of being involved with the law and community affairs,” he added. “I’m certainly honored.”

McKay practices in the fields of medical malpractice defense, health care law, products liability, commercial litigation, government defense, appellate law and professional licensure dispute.
