It's always an honor to be recognized for our work. I believe it is due to our unique experience working with both plaintiffs and defendants.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
Wagstaff & Cartmell trial attorneys, Tom Cartmell and John P. O’Connor were both recently recognized by Best Lawyers®, the oldest peer-review publication in the legal profession. Cartmell was named a 2013 Best Lawyers® Lawyer of the Year in Kansas City in the area of Medical Malpractice defense litigation. John P. O’Connor was named a 2013 Best Lawyers® Lawyer of the Year in Kansas City in the area of Criminal Defense (non-white-collar).
This significant honor results from “exhaustive peer-review assessments” and reflects the high level of respect these lawyers have earned from other leading lawyers in the same communities and practice areas. Only a single lawyer in each practice area in a given metropolitan area is selected for “Lawyer of the Year” recognition.
"It's always an honor for our firm to be recognized for our work," said Cartmell. "However, I'm most proud of the results we've been able to achieve for our clients. And I believe that is due to our unique experience in working with both plaintiffs and defendants.”
Cartmell has previously received recognition by Best Lawyers® for his work in plaintiffs’ personal injury litigation.
O’Connor has previously been recognized by Best Lawyers® for his work in the area of white-collar criminal defense.
About Best Lawyers
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
