Orr & Reno Places 13 Attorneys Among ‘The Best Lawyers in America’ – Three Named ‘Lawyer of the Year’

Thirteen attorneys from the Concord law firm of Orr & Reno have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2022 edition of The Best Lawyers in America[1].

Peter F. Burger,[2] Robert S. Carey[3], William L. Chapman[4], Jonathan M. Eck,[5] Judith A. Fairclough,[6] Susan S. Geiger[7], Margaret R. Kerouac[8], James F. Laboe[9], James E. Morris[10], Julie R. Morse[11], Douglas L. Patch[12], George W. Roussos[13], and Lisa Snow Wade[14] earned the distinction for a wide range of practice areas. This is the first year of recognition for Morse while all other attorneys have been listed in The Best Lawyers in America for multiple years.

Additionally, attorney Burger was selected as Concord’s “Lawyer of the Year” for Commercial Finance Law, attorney Carey was selected as Concord’s “Lawyer of the Year” for Personal Injury Litigation (defendants), and attorney Kerouac was selected as Concord’s “Lawyer of the Year” for Family Law. These distinctions are awarded to just a single attorney in each practice area in the community.

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.
