Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on impressive voting averages received during the peer-review assessments.
Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
In addition to the Lawyer of the Year award, Bill Winingham was also listed in the 2016 Best Lawyers in America in the following practice areas:
- Mass Tort Litigation / Class Action – Plaintiffs
- Product Liability Litigation – Plaintiffs
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
