Elizabeth Leete Selected as a “Lawyer of the Year”

Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named 26 attorneys as the Greater Hartford “Best Lawyers Lawyer of the Year” in their respective areas of practice for 2011.

Elizabeth Leete, of Leete, Kosto & Wizner, the sole female attorney on the list, is recognized for her practice in the field of immigration law.

After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal practice areas or fields of law in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each practice area or field of law in each community is being honored as the ‘Lawyer of the Year.”

Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 17th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011) is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in their surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers, says, “We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession.”
