Hall Estill Attorneys Recognized as Best Lawyers and Lawyer of the Year 2017

August 15, 2016

TULSA, Okla. (August 15, 2016) – Hall Estill, Oklahoma’s leading law firm, announced 11 of its attorneys were selected as 2017 Best Lawyers®Lawyers of the Year and nearly 60 Hall Estill attorneys were selected for inclusion as The Best Lawyers® in America 2017.

“The level of representation on this year’s Best Lawyers in America list speaks to the firm’s growth and expansion,” said Mike Cooke, Hall Estill managing partner. “Our firm’s success is built  on the experience and professionalism of our attorneys in providing legal counsel and service to our clients.”

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on a peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of the 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.”
