CHARLESTON – Jackson Kelly PLLC is pleased to announce that sixty of the firm’s lawyers were recently named in the 2014 edition of The Best Lawyers in America®. Lawyers from across the firm’s offices were honored in the publication.

In addition, eight Jackson Kelly PLLC lawyers were named as Best Lawyers’ 2014 Lawyers of the Year. Only a single lawyer in each area of practice in each community is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”

Those who received this honor are: Marcia Allen Broughton for Trusts and Estates (Morgantown), Charles D. Dunbar for Financial Services Regulation (Charleston), Robert F.

First published in 1983, Best Lawyers is based on an annual peer-review survey. Leading attorneys cast votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in the same and related specialties. Because of the methodology used by Best Lawyers and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered an honor.

Jackson Kelly PLLC is a national law firm representing leading global corporations, national companies, entrepreneurs and individuals in areas of law such as environmental, business, labor and employment, federal and state workers’ compensation, civil litigation and occupational safety and health. The firm has offices in Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.
