Six Vandeventer Black LLP attorneys were recently recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” in the Norfolk area. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. They are part of the 27 Vandeventer Black lawyers included in the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America.
The following lawyers were selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments:
- Christopher Ambrosio- Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships)
- James R. Harvey- Construction Law
- Patrick W. Herman- Tax Law
- Ray W. King- Litigation — Real Estate
- Arlene Klinedinst- Employment Law — Management
- Adam Rafal- Workers’ Compensation Law – Employers
Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity. Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
