September 13, 2012


Burns & Levinson LLP is proud to announce that 11 of its attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2013 (Copyright 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, S.C.), the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.

We congratulate attorneys Brian D. Bixby, Cornelius (Con) J. Chapman, Sean O. Coffey, Jerry Cohen, Steven Goodwin, Lawrence G. Green, Evelyn A. Haralampu, Laura R. Studen, George N. Tobia, Jr., Donald E. Vaughan, and Ellen J. Zucker.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, 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.”
