Orr & Reno Places Eight Attorneys Among “The Best Lawyers in America” – Fairclough Named “Lawyer of the Year”

Eight attorneys from the Concord law firm of Orr & Reno have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2019 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Peter F. Burger, William L. Chapman, Judith A. Fairclough, Susan S. Geiger, Margaret Kerouac, James E. Morris, Douglas L. Patch and George W. Roussos earned the distinction for a wide range of practice areas. Each has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America for multiple years.

Additionally, Fairclough is Concord’s Family Law “Lawyer of the Year.” This distinction is awarded to just a single attorney in each practice area in the community. This honor marks the second consecutive year that an Orr & Reno attorney has been named Family Law “Lawyer of the Year”, with Margaret Kerouac earning that accolade for 2018.

The Best Lawyers in America is considered the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States and inclusion is based on a confidential peer-review study by tens of thousands of lawyers. Lawyers are not permitted to pay a fee to be included in the listings, which were first published in 1983.
