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.
