So I woke up this morning to find the Best Lawyers insert in the Globe. I am”Lawyer of the Year” for Collaborative Family Law in the Boston Area. Better than being left out of the publication altogether (which happened several times because I ignored their emails). If anyone besides my family and co-workers notices this award, or notices this post, please let me know.
I am cynical about these publications, because I question a methodology that purports to evaluate so many lawyers free of charge. I think we all know this is just an opportunity to hit lawyers for advertising fees. It is nice to be recognized because my family always scours the publication. Best Lawyers is one of the most reputable and sober of these services and they do claim that the results are based upon peer review. So better to “Win” than not. I don’t think this is the first time for me, and I assume I have won, because others have “voted” for me. Grateful for your vote.
I would like to congratulate all the dedicated Collaborative lawyers and Collaborative professionals who have caused this movement to grow and thrive. The essence of Collaborative Law is that none of us can accomplish anything without each other. the members of the collaborative community around the world are my favorite people.
