Wells Marble is proud to announce that two of its attorneys were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2011 (Copyright 2010 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).
R. James (Jimmy) Young was recognized for his outstanding work in the practice area of Trusts and Estates, and has been included in The Best Lawyers in America® since 1999.
Kenna L. Mansfield, Jr. was selected for his experience and expertise in the specialty of Insurance Law, as he was in 2010.
First published in 1983, and the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive annual survey. For the new U.S. edition, more than 50% of the lawyers listed in Best Lawyers cast more than 3.1 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in the same and related specialties.
Because of the rigorous and transparent 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 a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers, says, "We continue to believe – as we have believed for 28 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of recognition in the legal profession."
