Plunkett Cooney attorneys among 2021 ‘Best Lawyers in America’

Twenty five Plunkett Cooney attorneys were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2021.

First published in 1983, Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which lawyers within their own geographic region nominate their peers. These lawyers are not allowed to select nominees from the same area(s) in which they practice. Inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed.

In addition to inclusion on the list this year, David K. Otis received the Best Lawyers™ 2021 Municipal Litigation “Lawyer of the Year” award in Lansing, Michigan and Mary Massaron was named the Best Lawyers® 2021 Appellate Practice “Lawyer of the Year” in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Lawyer of the Year is a designation awarded to only a single attorney in each practice area in each community.
