Moreover, Daniel Riesel has been named a Best Lawyers 2018 “Lawyer of the Year” in Environmental Law, while Mark A. Chertok is a Best Lawyers 2018 “Lawyer of the Year” in Environmental Litigation. This distinction is awarded to the attorneys who receive the highest overall feedback from their peers within a particular practice area and geographic location. Only one attorney is chosen as Lawyer of the Year for each practice area and region.

Inclusion in the Best Lawyers in America 2018 is based on “a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services” in order to “capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.”
