BHAMM Receives Extraordinary Recognition from Best Lawyers in America

Wed 9 Sep 03:49 | Posted by on News

Lawyers in the Firm have again received extraordinary recognition from Best Lawyers in America, an organization that relies on local peer reviews to distinguish those lawyers who exemplify the highest level of professional skill and accomplishment.  The 2021 edition, released on August 20, 2020, lists Scott B. Peatross as “Lawyer of the Year” in Memphis for the subject area of Trusts and Estates.  And for the third year, John J. Heflin, III, is listed as “Lawyer of the Year” in Memphis for the subject area of Litigation – Trusts and Estates.  “Lawyer of the Year” designees received the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice and geographic region.  Only one lawyer is recognized as “Lawyer of the Year” for each specialty and location.

Those announcements come on the heels of the selection last year of Donald E. Bourland as “Lawyer of the Year” for Corporate Law and David L. Bourland as “Lawyer of the Year” for Trusts and Estates.

Other important listings in the 2021 edition of Best Lawyers in America are the following:  John J. Heflin, III, in the additional subject areas of Commercial Litigation and Litigation – Labor and Employment; Donald E. Bourland in both Corporate Law and Real Estate Law; Robert K. Alvarez in Health Care Law; Paul A. Matthews in both Corporate Law and Bankruptcy and Creditor-Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law; Robert J. Pinstein in Commercial Finance Law; and David L. Bourland in both Tax Law and Trusts and Estates.  Thus, seven of our 12 lawyers are designated as Best Lawyers.  

In November 2020 Best Lawyers in America and U.S. News and World Reports will announce their rankings of law firms in the Memphis area for 2021.  BHAMM expects to again be listed within the top tiers of area firms in numerous subject areas.
