August 16, 2019

A total of 50 Foulston Siefkin lawyers are named in the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, including 14 honored as "Lawyer of the Year" in a specific practice area. First published in 1983, Best Lawyers is a well-known reference work which uses peer feedback to develop lawyer rankings. Lawyers on The Best Lawyers in America list are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers based on professional expertise and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing. Only one lawyer in each practice area and location is honored as the "Lawyer of the Year," based on peer-review assessments. This designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
