October 4, 2011

Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named H. Lamar "Mickey" Mixson and Emmet Bondurant as Atlanta Best Lawyers' 2012 Lawyers of the Year.

Mickey is recognized as the 2012 Atlanta Litigation - Securities Lawyer of the Year. Emmet is recognized as the 2012 Atlanta Lawyer of the Year for Arbitration and First Amendment litigation.  

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

Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 18th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2012) is based on more than 3.9 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in our surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
