Nine Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. Lawyers Included in 2017 Best Lawyers® List

Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. is pleased to announce that nine of our lawyers have been identified by their peers for inclusion in the 23rd edition of The Best Lawyers in America©. One of our attorneys was also selected as 2017 “Lawyer of the Year” in the field of Mediation for the Portland, Maine area. Only one lawyer is recognized as “Lawyer of the Year” for each specialty and location.

The 2017 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America includes top attorneys who have passed a rigorous vetting process involving a comprehensive peer-review survey in which attorneys can rate the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical and legal practice area. Inclusion is entirely merit-based, meaning that attorneys cannot pay for inclusion in the list and cannot nominate themselves. Approximately 7.3 million votes were analyzed to create this year’s edition.
