Ater Wynne LLP is pleased to announce that 18 lawyers have been named to the 2016 Edition of Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
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. The 22nd edition of The Best Lawyers In America (2016) includes attorneys in practice areas covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 5.5 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
Because lawyers on the Best Lawyers in America list are subject to an exhaustive peer-review survey and attorneys are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
Ater Wynne LLP would like to congratulate the following attorneys named to the 2016 Best Lawyers in America list, including the first year listed and Best Lawyers area of recognition:
Ater Wynne LLP attorney Steven K. Blackhurst has been selected as 2016 "Lawyer of the Year" by Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the "Lawyer of the Year," making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer-review assessments.
Receiving 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.
Mr. Blackhurst was named “Lawyer of the Year” in the area of Litigation- Banking and Finance in the Portland, OR area. This is his fourth consecutive year being selected as Lawyer of the Year.
