EDWARDSVILLE – Fifteen HeplerBroom attorneys were named to the Best Lawyers in American list for the 2018 edition.
Varying in locations and areas of practice, each attorney selected to the list is first nominated and reviewed by their peers.
Seven attorneys from the firm’s Edwardsville office were named in the edition.
Several of those honored specialize in multiple fields, such as mass tort law, including attorneys Brenda G. Baum, Gordon R. Broom, Eric Hall, Jeffrey S. Hebrank and Larry E. Hepler.
Jason Rankin, who specializes in product liability litigation, and Troy A. Bozarth also made the list.
Though the firm is based in Illinois, it has several locations throughout the Midwest, including St. Louis.
Five attorneys from the St. Louis firm were named to the list, including: Glenn E. Davis, whose list of many practice areas includes mergers and acquisitions; Theodore J. MacDonald Jr, who represents white-collar criminal defendants, among other clients; Thomas J. Magee, who focuses on professional malpractice law, among others; Gerald T. Noce, who specializes in personal injury litigation; and Michael L. Young, who focuses on insurance law.
HeplerBroom also had attorneys in its Springfield location recognized. Edward W. Dwyer and Katherine Hodge both work within environmental law.
Also, attorney Anthony J. Tunney of the Chicago office was recognized, who focuses on insurance litigation.
To be named a Best Lawyer, attorneys must score highly on anonymous peer reviews and later be selected in a series of polls.
