CHARLESTON – Jackson Kelly PLLC has announced that 65 of the firm’s lawyers were recently named in the 2016 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Lawyers from across the firm’s 12 offices were honored in the publication.

In addition, 11 Jackson Kelly lawyers were named as Best Lawyers’ 2016 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: Robby J. Aliff (Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants), Marcia Allen Broughton (Tax Law), Stephen R. Crislip (Legal Malpractice Law – Defendants), Charles D. Dunbar (Banking and Finance Law), Robert F. Duncan (Litigation – Construction), A.L. Emch (Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants), Samme L. Gee (Project Finance Law), John W. Hays (Construction Law), Timothy E. Huffman (Administrative / Regulatory Law), J. Rudy Martin (Arbitration) and Ann B. Rembrandt (Workers' Compensation Law – Employers).

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. The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.
