Twenty Archer Attorneys Listed by “Best Lawyers in America 2015”

Twenty attorneys with Archer P.C. have been selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2015.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which leading attorneys cast 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.”

Lawyers recognized by Best Lawyers are listed in practice areas based on votes from peers.

Notable among Archer’s Best Lawyers honorees is David H. Marion, a Partner in the firm’s Philadelphia office, who is recognized in five separate practice areas: Appellate Practice, Bet-the-Company Litigation, Commercial Litigation, First Amendment Law and Legal Malpractice Law. Also listed in multiple practice areas are Christopher R. Gibson, President of Archer, for Environmental Law and Litigation – Environmental; and Lloyd H. Tubman, a Partner in the firm’s Flemington, N.J., office, for Environmental Law, Land Use and Zoning Law, and Litigation – Environmental.

Also of note, Lee M. Hymerling, former Chair of Archer’s Family Law Department, has been listed by Best Lawyers in the area of Family Law every year since first publication in 1983 – 33 consecutive years on the list.
