The Best Lawyers in America list for 2013 has been announced and five lawyers in the Portland office of regional law firm Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt were designated as “Lawyers of the Year” in their respective practice areas. The five lawyers are:

  • Jill S. Gelineau– Eminent Domain and Condemnation Law
  • Peter E. Heuser – Intellectual Property
  • Daniel F. Knox – Construction
  • Mark A. Stayer – Timber Law
  • Katherine C. Tank – Labor & Employment

Those honored as Lawyers of the Year received particularly high ratings among peers for their abilities, professionalism and integrity. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community receives the distinction of Lawyer of the Year. These distinctions are in addition to the 50 Schwabe attorneys who were named to the overall Best Lawyers in America list for 2013.

Best Lawyers compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. In the U.S., Best Lawyers publishes an annual referral guide, The Best Lawyers in America, which includes 50,178 attorneys in 128 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
