Eastman & Smith Attorneys Appear in Best Lawyers


Four Eastman & Smith attorneys have been named Lawyers of the Year, for Toledo, in the 2017 edition of Best Lawyers in America®.  They are part of the 20 Eastman & Smith attorneys who can be found listed in the same edition of Best Lawyers®. 

Only one attorney per metropolitan region for each of the Best Lawyers® categories can receive a Lawyer of the Year award.   These attorneys were the recipients of the largest total peer feedback for the practice area and geographic region in which they received this honor.  There are over 2,000 attorneys in the Toledo metropolitan area, but only 21 are designated lawyers of the year by Best Lawyers®. 

In addition to Lawyers of the Year, Best Lawyers® lists the attorneys who are considered by their peers to be among the most respected in the profession. Twenty attorneys from Eastman & Smith are listed in the 2017 edition.  To qualify for Best Lawyers in America®, an attorney must be nominated, then reviewed by other attorneys and finally has to be in good standing with their respective state bar association ethics committee. Less than 5% of attorneys in the U.S. are listed in Best Lawyers®. Below are the names of Eastman & Smith attorneys on this year's list as well as the categories in which they appear.
