COLUMBIA, SC – Nekki Shutt, a founding partner at Burnette Shutt & McDaniel, has been named to South Carolina Lawyers Weekly’s Employment Law Power List.

The list recognizes attorneys’ important work in their practice area. Selection criteria include a record of success in cases, leadership in the community and in the legal profession, and the respect of peers.

A certified specialist in employment law since 2011, Shutt has dedicated her legal career to fighting unfair systems.
