Best Lawyers in America: Our Roots Are Showing

August 19, 2022

As a firm built upon understanding and effectively responding to its clients’ needs, we were pleased to have six of our attorneys, representing nine unique practice areas, selected to the 2023 Best Lawyers in America legal guide.  

Not only are their individual selections a feather in the collective caps of Dawn Estes, Jessica Thorne, Carol Payne, Abby Ewing, Lori Carr, and Linda Moore, but their honored work also spotlights their client-first litigation roots that have helped the firm to flourish. 

Dawn, Jessica, Carol, and Linda were all recognized for their commercial litigation work. Additionally, Carol was honored for her work related to construction litigation. She also earned repeat selection in the areas of legal malpractice defense and ethics and professional responsibility law, with Dawn again recognized for her arbitration practice. 

Jessica’s and Abby’s family law practices were recognized, as was their work in  collaborative family law.  

Lori earned honors for her work in labor and employment litigation, and management employment law.  

The oldest and one of the most respected guides to the U.S. legal profession, The Best Lawyers in America compiles its annual ranking of the nation's top lawyers from rigorous editorial research based on confidential peer-review surveys submitted by attorneys who practice in the same legal fields.
