Jeff Eberhard, Managing Partner and Paul Sheely, Construction Defect Practice Leader, Named 2021 Best Lawyers

Smith Freed Eberhard is pleased to announce two of its attorneys have been recognized in the 2021 Edition of Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and most respected peer review publication in the legal profession. Additionally, one attorney was recognized in the 2021 Edition of Best Lawyers Ones to Watch, which recognizes the most promising newer lawyers in the US who have been in practice for between five and ten years.

Best Lawyers recognizes extraordinary lawyers in the private practice through an exhaustive peer review process. The publication is respected in the community as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere. 

 To receive recognition from Best Lawyers selected lawyers first have to be nominated by their peers. Best Lawyers then determines their outstanding list of attorneys by conducting peer review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for a lawyer are positive enough for recognition in Best Lawyers, that lawyer must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain in each edition.
