August 20, 2014 – Four lawyers from Keller and Heckman were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2015. Melvin S. Drozen and Leslie T. Krasny were selected for their work in the area of FDA Law, and Richard J. Leighton and Sheila A. Millar were selected for their work in Advertising Law. Notably, Ms. Millar was also named Best Lawyers 2014-2015 Advertising Law “Lawyer of the Year” in Washington, DC.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as a definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 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.”
