Andrew Wizner Selected as a "Lawyer of the Year"

Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named Andrew Wizner, of Leete, Kosto & Wizner as Greater Hartford’s "Best Lawyer Lawyer of the Year" in the field of immigration law for 2013.

After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers in the last few years has begun 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."

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 more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.3 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."

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."
