Best Lawyers, one of the oldest and most respected peer-review publications in the legal profession, has named Doris R. Bray as the Best Lawyers’ 2012 Greensboro Securities Regulation Lawyer of the Year and Michael H. Godwin as the Best Lawyers’ 2012 Greensboro Trusts and Estates Lawyer of the Year.
After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”
Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 18th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2012) is based on more than 3.9 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in The Best Lawyers’ surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
