August 1, 2014


Portland, ME (August 1, 2014) – Drummond Woodsum, one of northern New England's premiere law firms, announced that 28 of its attorneys have been named to Best Lawyers in America 2015. Three of the firm's attorneys, across multiple practice areas, were ranked as a "Lawyer of the Year." Best Lawyers has consistently featured Drummond Woodsum attorneys, including David Backer, Jerry Crouter and Bill Stockmeyer, all of whom have been listed since 2007.

Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. A listing in Best Lawyers is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers. For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.

The 21st Edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2015) includes 52,488 attorneys in 137 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year's publication is based on more than 5.5 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The distinction of "Lawyer of the Year" is given to one attorney in each practice area and designated metropolitan area. The lawyers are selected based on peer voting in the areas of ability, professionalism and integrity.
