Monday, January 24, 2011

Tousley Brain Stephens attorneys Chris Brain, David Hoff, Kim Stephens, and Russell Tousley have been named to the 2011 edition of Best Lawyers in America®. David, Chris, and Kim were selected by their peers as three of the best commercial litigators. Russ and Chris were selected as two of the best real estate lawyers, and Kim as one of the best lawyers in eminent domain and condemnation law. Lawyers are chosen for inclusion based solely on the vote of their peers. Voting lawyers are provided this general guideline for determining if a nominee should be among "the best": "If you had a close friend or relative who needed a commercial litigator (for example), and you could not handle the case yourself, to whom would you refer them?"

Congratulations Chris, David, Kim, and Russ on being selected by your peers as among the Best Lawyers in America®.
