Stamford, CT, Sept. 14, 2023 -- Thomas D. Colin was recently named 2024 "Lawyer of the Year" in Family Law in Stamford by Best Lawyers®. The organization also recognized Colin and four other members of the law firm of Siegel, Colin & Kaufman,P.C. for inclusion in the 30th edition of The Best Lawyers in America® in the field of Family Law. They are Jaime Dursht (who was also honored in the Collaborative Law Family Law category), Ross M. Kaufman, Dyan M. Kozaczka and Frederic J. Siegel, all of whom are partners in the firm.
"Lawyer of the Year" honors are awarded annually to only one lawyer per practice area in each region, with extremely high overall feedback from their peers. The Best Lawyers® website describes it as “…. an exceptional distinction.”
Recognition of the five SCK partners by Best Lawyers® is based entirely on peer review. The process 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. While nominations are open to anyone, most come from clients, other lawyers and marketing teams. Nominations are voted on by attorneys who answer the question, “If you were unable to take a case yourself, how likely would you be to refer it to this nominee?”
