Best Lawyers® Selects Principals Peter Gladstone & Jeffrey Weissman to 2016 The Best Lawyers in America© in Family Law; Weissman as 2016 Lawyer of the Year – Fort Lauderdale Metro Area in Family Law

By August 17, 2015No Comments

Peter L. Gladstone and Jeffrey A. Weissman, principals of marital and family law firm Gladstone & Weissman, P.A., have been named to the 2016 The Best Lawyers in America© list in the practice area of Family Law. Gladstone has been named to the list each year from 2005–2016; Weissman has been named to the list each year from 2007–2016.

Weissman has also been awarded the distinction of 2016 Lawyer of the Year in Family Law, Fort Lauderdale metropolitan area (including Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Delray Beach) by Best Lawyers®. In 2014, Weissman was named the Family Law Lawyer of the Year in the Miami metropolitan area (Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton) by Best Lawyers.

Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. Lawyers being honored as “Lawyer of the Year” are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer review assessments Best Lawyers conducts with thousands of leading lawyers each year. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for his or her abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

Inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America is based entirely on peer review. The methodology is designed 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. Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services.

“Once again, Mr. Weissman and I are honored to be named to The Best Lawyers in America,” said Gladstone. “It is extremely rewarding to continue to be chosen by our peers for this prestigious honor in the field of Family Law.”

“It is a great honor to be named 2016 Lawyer of the Year in Family Law – Fort Lauderdale metro area by Best Lawyers,” said Weissman. “Having also received the Lawyer of the Year distinction in 2014, I feel that it is a great reflection of my ongoing dedication to and success in the field of marital and family law.”
