Best Lawyers® selected me for inclusion in the 2021 edition of The Best Lawyers in America: Ones to Watch. Lawyers were selected for inclusion in the 2021 edition based entirely on a peer-review process.
This recognition is given to attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice. Best Lawyers® is the oldest peer review publication in the legal profession. Recognition in Best Lawyers® is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers.
While I am skeptical of most awards handed out by national attorney organizations, I am thrilled to be recognized by Best Lawyers® because it is based on peer reviews. Many other organizations offer an award simply if an attorney is willing to pay for it. I do not participate in any such organizations. But being nominated by others in my profession is the greatest honor I could ever receive. I am truly humbled.
