Special to The Sun

EDMOND — Crowe & Dunlevy recently announced that more than 20 attorneys have been named 2014 Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.

The lawyers being honored as Lawyers of the Year have received particularly high ratings in the surveys. Only one lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the Lawyer of the Year.

“We are extremely proud of these attorneys and the leadership they provide to our firm and the industries they serve,” said Crowe & Dunlevy President Kevin Gordon.

Since it was first published 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 almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast almost five 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.

Edmond attorneys on the list from Crowe & Dunlevy include:

• Harvey D. Ellis Jr. for Oklahoma City Appellate Practice; and

• James W. Larimore for Oklahoma City Securities/Capital Markets Law.

For more than 110 years, Crowe & Dunlevy has provided innovative and effective legal services to clients in numerous industries. The firm and its attorneys are annually ranked among the top professionals in the nation by nationally recognized peer-review organizations.
