Best Lawyers, the oldest peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named four Smith Hulsey & Busey attorneys as 2014 Best Lawyers in America “Lawyers of the Year.” The recognized attorneys include:

  • Stephen D. Busey, chairman of the firm, as Jacksonville “Lawyer of the Year” in Bet-the-Company Litigation

Those honored as “Lawyers of the Year” received particularly impressive ratings in Best Lawyers surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism and integrity. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is honored as the “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. Best Lawyers has been designating “Lawyers of the Year” in the United States in high-profile legal practice areas since 2009 and has expanded to international recognitions.
