Upton & Hatfield, LLP, recently announced two of the practice’s attorneys were selected for inclusion in “Best Lawyers in America” Lawyers of the Year, a peer-review publication covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The honored attorneys at Upton & Hatfield are:
- Heather M. Burns, Best Lawyers’ 2013 Concord Employment Law - Individuals "Lawyer of the Year."
- Robert W. Upton II, Best Lawyers’ 2013 Concord Litigation - Real Estate "Lawyer of the Year."
“Upton & Hatfield has been serving the people, businesses and municipalities of New Hampshire for over 100 years, and we take great pride in the way our attorneys focus on providing outstanding service to our clients,” said Managing Partner James F. Raymond. “Having two of our attorneys listed as “Best Lawyers in America” Lawyers of the Year is an honor for our firm, and we’re pleased to have the distinction of being chosen for inclusion by our peers.”
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.”
