Attorney Kathryn Calibey at the Hartford personal injury law firm of RisCassi & Davis, has just been named the Best Lawyers’ 2020 Lawyer of the Year in Hartford (for Appellate Practice).
Her selection means that an attorney from RisCassi & Davis has been named “Lawyer of the Year” in nine of the last eleven years (Bill Davis, Jim Bartolini, Kathy Calibey, Michael Jainchill, John Houlihan, Andy Groher, Patrick Kennedy, and Dave Cooney).
Additionally, nine (9) of our attorneys are included in the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America®.
How do Best Lawyers choose the top attorneys in a region?
“Inclusion is based entirely on peer-review. The methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area. Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services. Our belief has always been that the quality of a peer-review survey is directly related to the quality of its voting pool.
“Lawyer of the Year” recognitions are awarded to individual attorneys with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific Practice Area and geographic location. Only one lawyer is recognized as the “Lawyer of the Year” for each specialty and location.”
