Last week I received a letter informing me that I had been selected for inclusion in the 2010 edition of Best Lawyers in America. I have been fortunate to have been included among this distinguished group of lawyers since 1993.
This year I have been listed in the specialties of Bet-the-Company Litigation, Commercial Litigation, Medical Malpractice Law, Personal Injury Litigation, and Product Liability Litigation.
Best Lawyers surveys lawyers to determine who should be included in the publication. Thus, I fully realize that I would not be included in this book if it were not for the votes I received from my fellow lawyers, many of whom deserve equal or even greater recognition for their service to their clients and to the profession. I also realize that I would not be a part of this publication without the wonderful support I receive from every member of our firm, each of whom works diligently every day to serve our clients.
Some of you may be surprised to learn that our firm does commercial litigation. Well, we do. We learned many years ago that those involved in commercial disputes need lawyers with trial experience to help them with complex cases, particularly those that may be tried before a jury. My undergraduate degree is in business and economics, and I ran a business with 26 employees at the age of 19, so I enjoy the issues that these cases present.
Once again, thank you to all of those who were kind enough to help me become listed in Best Lawyers.
