    Best Lawyers recognizes Bricker & Eckler attorneys

    Columbus, Ohio: August 18, 2015 – The Best Lawyers in America® 2016 (copyright 2015 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC) recently published their annual rankings featuring Kimball Carey as “Lawyer of the Year” in Columbus for Education Law. Additionally, 65 Bricker lawyers, representing 46 percent of the firm's attorneys, were selected by their peers for inclusion in this year’s edition.

    Best Lawyers names only a single lawyer in each specialty as the “Lawyer of the Year” in each market. Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current edition is based on detailed evaluations of nearly four million lawyers nationwide. Attorneys honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in surveys for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.

    Attorneys are named to the Best Lawyers list following a peer-review survey of more than 36,000 leading attorneys across the nation who cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Lawyers listed in Best Lawyers have no say in selecting the practice areas in which they are listed and are voted into the named practice area as a result of the votes received from peers.
