Sussman Shank LLP is proud to announce that seven of our attorneys have been named to the 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, the oldest, most respected, peer-review publication in the legal profession.

The firm's Managing Partner, Tom Stilley , was recognized by Best Lawyers® as the 2023 "Lawyer of the Year" for Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law and Litigation – Bankruptcy.  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.  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 their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.

In addition, Tab Wood has been included in the 2023 Edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch for Transportation Law.  Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch recognizes lawyers who are earlier in their careers for their outstanding professional excellence in private practice in the United States.
