Attorney David Van Slyke Selected by Peers as “Lawyer of the Year” in Best Lawyers in America 2020

Preti Flaherty attorney David B. Van Slyke has been named in the 2020 Best Lawyers in America as the “Lawyer of the Year” in the field of Environmental Law for the Portland region.

Inclusion in Best Lawyers in America is considered a high honor because attorneys are chosen by their peers—they are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed. Nominations are based on an intensive peer-review survey in which more than 25,000 of the nation’s attorneys cast nearly two million votes. “Lawyer of the Year” honorees represent attorneys with the highest overall peer feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region. Only one attorney is recognized as the "Lawyer of the Year" for each specialty and location.

The magazine Corporate Counsel has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
