Connell Foley LLP is pleased to announce that 51 of the firm’s lawyers are included in the 2022 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, one of the oldest and most respected peer-review publications in the legal profession.

Of note, three Connell Foley attorneys were named “Lawyer of the Year,” which is awarded to individual lawyers with the highest overall peer feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region. Only one lawyer is recognized as the "Lawyer of the Year" for each practice area and location.

In addition, five of the Connell Foley attorneys listed were named to the second edition of Best Lawyers “Ones to Watch,” a recognition given to attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice. 

Lawyers that are included on The Best Lawyers in America© list are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional experience and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.
