Attorneys Joshua D. Cohen, William J. Zee III, and David M. Walker of Lancaster, Pa., law firm Hartman Underhill & Brubaker, LLC (HUB), recently were named by colleagues in the region as “select lawyers” in the areas of international transactions and disputes law and education law.

To determine the list, attorneys in the Susquehanna Valley region of Pennsylvania were asked, among other questions, “If you had to refer a family member or friend to another lawyer, who among your colleagues would you recommend?” The result is a list of professionals from more than 30 legal specialties who have earned a high degree of peer recognition for their achievements.

The results of the poll were compiled by the Polk-Lepson Research Group in York, Pa., and will appear in the December 2015 issue of Susquehanna Style.
