August 24, 2010

Henson Efron, P.A. is proud to recognize attorneys Joseph T. Dixon, Jr., Stanley Efron, Alan C. Eidsness and William F. Forsyth who were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2011 (Copyright 2010 by Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, S.C.). Efron has been listed in Best Lawyers® for 20 years or longer, while both Eidsness and Forsyth have received the honor for more than 15 years.  Dixon has been listed for more than five years.

Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers® is based on an exhaustive peer review survey in which more than 39,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.1 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers® is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers ‘the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.’

Dixon was included in Bet-the-Company Litigation and Commercial Litigation, Efron in Corporate Law, Forsyth in Family Law, and Eidsness in Family Law and Family Law Mediation.

It is important to note that the lawyers listed in Best Lawyers® have no say in deciding which practice areas they are included in. They are voted into practice areas entirely as a result of the votes they receive from their peers. The subspecialties listed are based on information from a variety of sources.
