Flaherty Sensabaugh Bonasso Attorneys Recognized by The Best Lawyers in America©

Flaherty Sensabaugh Bonasso PLLC is pleased to announce that 21 of the firm’s attorneys have been selected for inclusion in the 2016 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©. Additionally, two Flaherty attorneys were named as Best Lawyers® 2016 Lawyers of the Year. Only one lawyer in each area of practice is honored as “Lawyer of the Year” in their community. Lawyers honored for 2016 include Jeffrey A. Holmstrand for Appellate Practice – Defendants (Morgantown, WV) and Edward C. Martin for Health Care Law – Defendants (Charleston, WV).

Best Lawyers, based on a peer-review survey, has been compiled annually since 1983. Leading attorneys cast votes on the capabilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Because of the methodology used by Best Lawyers and because lawyers are not permitted to pay a listing fee, inclusion is considered an honor. The American Lawyer has called Best Lawyers “the most respected list of attorneys in practice.”
