Frederick Schenk Named Lawyer of the Year for Mass Torts/Class Action
SAN DIEGO (August 28, 2013) – CaseyGerry partner Frederick Schenk has been selected by his peers as San Diego “Lawyer of the Year” for Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions in the 2014 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, a prestigious national ranking of attorneys selected through an exhaustive annual peer-review process.
According to Best Lawyers www.BestLawyers.com, those honored as “Lawyer of the Year” are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of leading lawyers each year. The honor reflects the highest level of respect a lawyer has earned among other attorneys based on his or her abilities, professionalism and integrity.
“Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the Lawyer of the Year,” said the firm’s managing partner David S. Casey, Jr. “The fact that this honor is given by peers makes this accolade particularly significant.”
Five CaseyGerry partners – Gayle M. Blatt, David S. Casey, Jr., Robert J. Francavilla, Thomas D. Penfield and Schenk – are all featured in the 2014 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and most respected peer-reviewed publication in the legal profession. This marks the eighth consecutive year Casey and Schenk have been featured, the sixth year for Francavilla, the fourth year for Penfield, and the third year Blatt has been recognized.
