Four From A&G Named “Lawyer of the Year” in Their Practice Areas

Four attorneys with Archer P.C. have been selected as 2013 “Lawyer of the Year” for their areas and practices by The Best Lawyers in America, a highly respected peer-review ranking.

Best Lawyers rankings are 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. Best Lawyers announced last month that 16 Archer attorneys were selected for inclusion in the 2013 The Best Lawyers in America list.

“Lawyers of the Year” are selected from that list based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments. 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, professionalism and integrity.

The Archer attorneys named Best Lawyers “Lawyers of the Year” are:

  • David H. Marion, Philadelphia First Amendment Law “Lawyer of the Year”
  • Steven K. Mignogna, Philadelphia Litigation – Trusts & Estates “Lawyer of the Year”
  • Gianfranco A. Pietrafesa, Hackensack Corporate Law “Lawyer of the Year”
  • Lloyd H. Tubman, Philadelphia Land Use & Zoning Law “Lawyer of the Year”
 “We at Archer are extremely proud to have these fine lawyers as our colleagues,” firm President Christopher R. Gibson said. “This honor is particularly meaningful because it’s based on the sentiments of peers. That speaks volumes about the skills and character of these individuals.”
