HeplerBroom has announced that six of its attorneys -- Theodore MacDonald, Gordon Broom, Tom Magee, Larry Hepler, Jeffrey Hebrank and Gerard Noce -- have been named to the 2011 edition of Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
First published in 1983, Best Lawyers is based on an annual peer-review survey. For the new U.S. edition, more than 50 percent of the lawyers listed in Best Lawyers cast more than 3.1 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in the same and related specialties.
Because of the rigorous methodology used by Best Lawyers, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel Magazine has called Best Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers, says, "We continue to believe – as we have believed for 28 years – that recognition by one's peers is the most meaningful form of recognition in the legal profession."
