Stephen H. Reisman, Vice Chair of Peckar & Abramson, was also named to the Super Lawyers list of Top 100 Florida attorneys, an honor given to lawyers who, according to the publication, ranked top of the list in nominations, research, and peer evaluations.
“Our Miami office has always been committed to bringing together some of the most proficient attorneys who are passionate and extremely dedicated to serving the construction industry,” said Adam P. Handfinger, co-managing partner of P&A’s Miami office.
Regarding Stephen Reisman’s Top 100 honor, Gary M. Stein, co-managing partner of P&A’s Miami office, commented, “We are pleased to see this recognition, that reflects Steve’s leadership in the bar and construction industry, but within our firm, Steve’s leadership has been well recognized for decades – he has been central to developing our deep bench of talented construction lawyers in Florida.”
Earlier this year, P&A announced 23 attorneys had been named to the 2021 Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists in some of the firm’s other locations – Illinois, New Jersey, Southern California, Texas (Rising Stars only), and Washington, DC. The upcoming lists reflecting the firm’s remaining locations, New York and Texas, have yet to be released.
Super Lawyers states that its process involves the selection of attorneys using a “patented multiphase selection process combining peer nominations and evaluations with independent research,” and that “each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.” They state that selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. According to Super Lawyers, their objective is to create a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Regarding its Rising Stars category, Super Lawyers states that eligibility for inclusion requires that a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.
