Towson, MD– Pessin Katz Law is pleased to announce that nine lawyers have been named to the 2015 Edition of Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. Best Lawyers has published their list for over three decades, earning the respect of the profession, the media, and the public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals. Its first international list was published in 2006 and since then has grown to provide lists in over 65 countries. “Best Lawyers is the most effective tool in identifying critical legal expertise,” said President and Co-Founder Steven Naifeh. “Inclusion on this list shows that an attorney is respected by his or her peers for professional success.” Lawyers on the Best Lawyers in America list are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing. 

The following attorneys have been named to the 2015 Best Lawyers in America list:

Also, PK Law attorney David N. Pessin was selected as  2015 “Lawyer of the Year” for Sports Law in the Baltimore area. 

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 high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity. 

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. 

We congratulate these attorneys as this shows their dedication to PK Law clients and professionalism within the legal field.
