If we were mathematicians, we could easily break down our firm’s Best Lawyers in America honors by the numbers.

* Six partners recognized in 10 unique practice areas in the legal guide’s 2022 edition,

* Five selected among the top commercial litigation attorneys in the country,

* Three honored for their family law work,

* One associate selected among Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch,

* Since the first selection in 2006, collectively our attorneys have earned Best Lawyers honors a total of 85 times.
But we’re attorneys and we know there is always more to the story than just simple numbers. And in our case, it’s a story we’re pretty proud to share.

Collectively, partners Dawn EstesJessica Thorne,  Carol Payne, and Linda Moore have earned Best Lawyers honors for their commercial litigation work an impressive 30 times. Joining this elite group is associate Stephanie Matherne, who this year earned her first Ones to Watch selection among the top young litigators in the country.
