50 GableGotwals Attorneys Named to 2017 Best Lawyers in America® List

GableGotwals is pleased to announce that 50 lawyers have been named to the 2017 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. Three GableGotwals attorneys have been named to the list for the first time including Sara Barry, Alicia Edwards and Deborah Shallcross.

Best Lawyers has published their list for over three decades, earning the respect of the profession, the media, and the public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals. Its first international list was published in 2006 and since then has grown to provide lists in over 65 countries.

“For more than a third of a century,” says CEO Steven Naifeh, “Best Lawyers has been the gold standard of excellence in the legal profession.” President Phil Greer adds, “We are extremely proud of that record and equally proud to acknowledge the accomplishments of these exceptional legal professionals.”

Lawyers on The Best Lawyers in America list are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.

GableGotwals would like to congratulate the following attorneys named to The Best Lawyers in America list:
