Best Lawyers in America, one of the oldest and most respected peer-review publications in the legal profession, has named David B. Markowitz “Portland Real Estate Litigation Lawyer of the Year” for 2013. Markowitz is a trial lawyer and shareholder in the Markowitz, Herbold, Glade & Mehlhaf firm.
Best Lawyers designates “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as a “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 edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2013) is based on more than 4.3 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by lawyers.
The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in Best Lawyers’ surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
