Lacy Katzen LLP attorney Jacqueline M. Thomas was recently recognized by Best Lawyers® as the 2022 “Lawyer of the Year” for Plaintiff’s Medical Malpractice Law.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated region is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. The Lawyer of The Year is the lawyer who receives the highest number of votes during a peer review process involving other attorneys recognized as Best Lawyers in the same field and area.
Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same community for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.
In addition to the “Lawyer of the Year” award, Jacqueline has been recognized by Best Lawyers since 2018 for both Plaintiff’s Medical Malpractice Law and Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Litigation. She has also been recognized by Super Lawyers magazine since 2017 as amongst the top 5% of Upstate New York Lawyers. The Super Lawyers list is published by Thompson Reuters and is intended to recognize attorneys who have achieved a high level of peer recognition and professional achievement.
Lacy Katzen LLP is particularly proud of this latest accolade as the recognition was bestowed upon our own Peter T. Rodgers in 2017. To have TWO of our attorneys receive the “Lawyer of the Year” recognition in such a challenging practice area speaks volumes of their dedication and hard work on behalf of our clients.
