LEGAL - Best Lawyer logoBest Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, named Clark R. Hudson “San Diego Best Lawyers Medical Malpractice Law – Defense, Lawyer of the Year” for 2013.

After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers designated “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community was honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”

Neil Dymott shareholder, Clark R. Hudson, was recently selected by his peers for “San Diego Best Lawyers Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants, Lawyer of the Year” for 2013. The lawyers honored as “Lawyers of the Year” received particularly high ratings in the Best Lawyers surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

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 4.4 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.”
