While we have resisted using this blog as a platform for self-promotion, we recently received a share-worthy distinction which both flatters and humbles us. We invite you, our loyal readers, to celebrate in our success, which in great measure is due to you.
John P. Ahlers, one of the firm’s founding partners, was given the highly regarded honor of being among the Top 10 (overall) of all Washington Super Lawyers in 2012. The following five other firm members were also recognized as Super Lawyers: Founding partner Paul R. Cressman, Jr., Scott R. Sleight (partner), and Bruce A. Cohen (partner) were selected as Super Lawyers; Brett M. Hill (partner) and Ryan W. Sternoff (associate) were selected as Super Lawyer Rising Stars – fifty percent of the firm’s lawyers received the Super Lawyer distinction.
The Super Lawyer selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations, and peer evaluations. The information is then collected by Thomson Reuters, who selects the outstanding lawyers from Washington State’s 30,000 attorneys (in 70 practice areas) who have obtained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Thus, this recognition has confirmed that the firm’s values of commitment to client service, ensuring that our clients’ interests remain paramount, and our vigilance that the firm continually delivers high-quality legal services at a reasonable cost are paying dividends.
This honor can also be credited to all of the firm’s hardworking and talented professionals, including administrative staff, paralegals, and clerks. As always, we will continue to offer high-quality legal services to the construction industry.
