Best Lawyers 2009 Toledo Personal Injury Litigator of the Year Marty Williams

Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named Martin W. Williams as the Toledo Best Lawyers Personal Injury Litigator of the Year for 2009.

After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating Lawyers of the Year in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities.

These specialties are Banking Law, Bet-the-Company Litigation, Corporate Law, Family Law, Personal Injury Litigation, and Real Estate Law and only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the Lawyer of the Year.

Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 15th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2009), is based on more than 2.5 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The lawyers being honored as Lawyers of the Year have received particularly high ratings in our 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 Martin W. Williams on being selected as the Toledo Best Lawyers Personal Injury Litigator of the Year' for 2009.
