Eaton Peabody Attorneys Named Best Lawyers “Lawyer of the Year” for 2016

MAINE – Eaton Peabody is pleased to announce that Best Lawyers in America has announced that two of the firm’s attorneys were recently selected by their peers as “Lawyer of the Year” for their work in various practice categories.  As stated by Best Lawyers, “[o]nly a single lawyer in each practice area in each community is being honored as the ‘Lawyer of the Year.’”

The Recognized attorneys are:

Edward F. Feibel – Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law
P. Andrew Hamilton – Land Use and Zoning Law

Best Lawyers in America compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting peer-review surveys in which leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The recognized attorneys were honored as “Lawyer of the Year” because they received a particularly high rating by Best Lawyers in their practice areas.  This high rating is the result of the level of respect among their voting peers for their legal ability, professionalism and integrity.
