Exciting news as two Grand Rapids municipal attorneys receive Best Lawyers honors

Date: Thursday, August 20, 2020

We're celebrating today as two of our attorneys have earned high honors from Best Lawyers.

Danielle Dawson was included in the inaugural edition of the "Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch" for her work in Administrative / Regulatory Law and Municipal Law. The "Ones to Watch" awards recognize attorneys who are earlier in their careers, for outstanding professional excellence in private practice in the United States. The recipients have typically been in practice for 5-9 years.

In addition, we're pleased to announce that Jeff Sluggett has once again been selected by his peers for inclusion in "The Best Lawyers™ in America 2021” for his work in the area of Municipal Law. This is the fifth time Jeff has been recognized as a Best Lawyer; including his 2019 “Lawyer of the Year” honors.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. Almost 108,000 industry leading lawyers are eligible to vote (from around the world), and over 13 million evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers based on their specific practice areas around the world were received. For the 2021 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 9.4 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 67,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.

Congratulations, Jeff and Danielle! You are both very deserving of these awards.
