Firm attorneys recognized in more than 15 practice areas across five firm offices

Florham Park, N.J. – August 20, 2020 – Bressler, Amery & Ross is pleased to announce that 44 of its attorneys have been named to the 2021 edition of the Best Lawyers in America, one of the oldest and most respected legal profession peer-review publications.

In addition, Principals A. Inge Selden III (Litigation-Securities) and MaryJane Dobbs (Litigation - Labor and Employment) received “Lawyer of the Year” recognition in their respective practice areas. The “Lawyer of the Year” recognition is awarded to individual attorneys with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region. Best Lawyers selects only one attorney in each practice category and designated geographic region as their "Lawyer of the Year," making this recognition especially noteworthy.

Fifteen Bressler attorneys were also named in a new Best Lawyers category – “Ones to Watch” -- which focuses on more junior lawyers who have been in practice between five and nine years.

Selection for Best Lawyers is a nomination and peer-reviewed process, designed to yield only the top 5% of the lawyers in each state. Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public as a reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals. A complete listing of the firm’s attorneys in the 2021 edition of Best Lawyers, listed by state, is as follows:
