Burns & Levinson LLP is proud to announce that 11 of the firm’s attorneys were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2012 (Copyright 2011 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, Laura L. Carroll, Sean O. Coffey, Jerry Cohen, Lisa M. Cukier, Dennis J. Kelly, David P. Rosenblatt, Paul M. Sanford, Laura R. Studen, and George N. Tobia, Jr. Mr. Coffey (10 years) and Mr. Rosenblatt (10 years) are part of a distinguished group who have been listed in Best Lawyers for ten years or longer. Many of our attorneys were also selected in more than one field. Since its inception 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 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, 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.” 2012 Best Lawyers: Brian D.
