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 level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same area of law for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
In addition to the “Lawyer of the Year” award, Dan is also listed in the 2022 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the following practice areas:
