Awards & Recognition
Hiscock & Barclay attorneys recognized as Best Lawyers for 2015.
Twenty-four attorneys from Hiscock & Barclay have been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2015. In addition to being on the list, four attorneys have been recognized as "Lawyer of the Year." Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
