Rusing Lopez & Lizardi has proudly been the home to attorneys honored by Best Lawyers© for the past 16 years. RL&L attorneys have been recognized in all 3 award categories in the 28th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©. RL&L has 2 attorneys, J. William Brammer, Jr., and Michael Rusing, receiving the prestigious “Lawyer of the Year” designation. This award is particularly impressive as it is presented to only one individual in each geographical region and practice area each edition. We have 9 attorneys, Sivan Korn, Mark Lammers, Oscar Lizardi, Pat Lopez III, Rebecca O’Brien, Tim Reckart, Jonathan Saffer, Michael Rusing, and J. William Brammer, receiving Best Lawyer recognition in 16 practice areas, and RL&L attorney, Mae Innabi, was recognized in the Second Edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch!

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers© has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. Almost 108,000 industry leading lawyers are eligible to vote (from around the world), and we have received over 13 million evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers based on their specific practice areas around the world. For the 2022 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 9.4 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 67,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
