Nossaman Attorneys Recognized as Best Lawyers for 2012

Nossaman is pleased to announce that Best Lawyers, a highly regarded peer-review legal publication, has included five Nossaman attorneys in their annual referral guide, The Best Lawyers in America.

David Kimport has been recognized for real estate law; Marty Mattes for administrative/regulatory, communications, and energy law; Kurt Melchior for insurance law; Linda Morgan for both railroad and transportation law; and Rob Thornton for environmental litigation.

Additionally, Nossaman received the "Top-Listed" designation in Washington, D.C. for Railroad Law and in Irvine, CA for Litigation - Environmental.  This designation is given to the firm that has the most listed lawyers in a particular location and practice area. 

The Best Lawyers lists appear online at, in custom publications distributed in targeted regions, and in various third-party publications around the globe. 

Inclusion in Best Lawyers is based on peer review. Best Lawyers asks voters the question: "If you were unable to take a case yourself, how likely would you be to refer it to this nominee?" Nominees are given a 1-5 rating, with room to leave additional comments. Editors make final decisions based both on comments that are made about a nominee during the polling process and on the nominees' average rating.
