COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Best Lawyers in America® 2014 (copyright 2013 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC) recently named nine Bricker & Eckler attorneys as "Lawyer of the Year" in Columbus and Cincinnati. Additionally, fifty-five Bricker lawyers, representing nearly 38 percent of the firm's attorneys, were selected by their peers for inclusion in this year's edition.

Best Lawyers names only a single lawyer in each specialty as the "Lawyer of the Year" in each market.  Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current edition is based on detailed evaluations of nearly four million lawyers nationwide. Attorneys honored as "Lawyers of the Year" have received particularly high ratings in surveys for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.
