By The West Virginia Record | Oct 27, 2010


CHARLESTON -- Forrest Roles, a partner in Dinsmore & Shohl's Charleston office, was recently recognized as the "Lawyer of the Year" for Natural Resources Law in Charleston by The Best Lawyers in America 2011.

Roles received the honor based on reviews by earning a high level of respect among his peers for his abilities, professionalism, and integrity. In total, 141 lawyers from Dinsmore & Shohl were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2011 edition of Best Lawyers.

Since its inception 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 more than 39,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.1 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. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."

Dinsmore & Shohl is comprised of more than 450 attorneys practicing in 10 offices throughout Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. For more information, visit
