Tier 1 recognition is reserved for the highest scoring firms during the annual review process. Six of our attorneys were once again selected in their respective fields of specialty: (1) Ira M. Starr in real estate and corporate law; (2) Amos Gern in plaintiffs personal injury and medical malpractice law; (3) Ronald L. Davison in commercial litigation and trusts & estates litigation; (4) Stephen R. Urbinato in business organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships); Charles F. Vuotto, Jr. in family law; and (6) Bruce M. Pitman in family law. Selection for Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey comprised of more than four million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country. The publication has been described by The American Lawyer as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
In addition to these rankings, Best Lawyers selected Principal Ira M. Starr as a “Lawyer of the Year” in Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships). The “Lawyer of the Year” recognition is awarded to individual attorneys with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region. Best Lawyers selects only one attorney in each practice category and designated geographic region as their "Lawyer of the Year," making this recognition especially noteworthy.
We are also proud that Ana Rita Ferreira, a senior associate in the personal injury litigation department, was named in “Ones to Watch”, a new Best Lawyers list, which focuses on lawyers who have been in practice between five and nine years.
