Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named Robert R. Michael as the “Washington, D.C. Best Lawyers Personal Injury Litigator of the Year” for 2010. After more than a quarter of a century, Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”

Best Lawyers compiles its list of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in its surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity. Steven Naifeh, Managing Editor of Best Lawyers, says, “We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Robert R. Michael on being selected as the ‘Washington, D.C. Best Lawyers Personal Injury Litigator of the Year’ for 2010.”
