MARTINSBURG - Walter M. Jones, III, Martin & Seibert's Managing Shareholder, Susan R. Snowden, E. Kay Fuller and Michael M. Stevens, shareholders, were recently named 2014 Lawyers of the Year by Best Lawyers in America.
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.
“We are very fortunate to have lawyers in the firm who are recognized by our clients and opponents as being leaders in their areas of practice. We are committed to providing the highest level of business knowledge and legal expertise. Having four members named to Best Lawyers in America, an award based on client and peer review, is an honor for the firm and its members and then to have those same four identified as Lawyers of the Year is very exciting as it recognizes the core values of our firm,” Jones said.
Lawyers of the Year recipients are selected based on voting averages received during peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of leading lawyers each year. 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.
Jones, Snowden, Fuller and Stevens were identified for their work in Insurance Law, Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions - Defendants; Personal Injury Litigation - Defendants; Product Liability Litigation - Defendants; and Workers' Compensation Law – Employers, Mediation, Appellate Practice, Commercial Litigation, Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights, Insolvency and Reorganization Law, and Commercial Finance.
