Cleveland Law Firm Attorneys Recognized for Excellence

Monday February 20, 2023 Published in Corporate and Business

Cleveland Wegman Hessler Valore is celebrating several attorneys recently recognized for professional excellence with “Super Lawyer” and “Best Lawyer” honors.

Super Lawyer Recognition

Being recognized as a “Super Lawyer” is a prestigious honor that is awarded to a limited number of outstanding lawyers each year. The recognition is based on a rigorous and comprehensive selection process that evaluates the lawyer’s experience, achievements, and other professional credentials. It is a recognition of their legal skills and expertise in their field, as well as their commitment to providing high-quality representation to their clients.

Wegman Hessler Valore attorneys selected to Super Lawyers for 2023 include:

  • Chris A. Holecek – Selected to Super Lawyers: 2012-2023
  • Angela M. Lavin – Selected to Super Lawyers: 2015-2016, 2018-2023
  • Rachel E. Lyons – Selected to Rising Stars: 2022-2023

Being recognized as a Super Lawyer is considered to be an important achievement in a lawyer’s career and is viewed as a testament to their legal ability, integrity, and commitment to their clients.

Recognized Lawyers in Best Lawyers®

Included in the 2023 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©.

Being recognized as a “Best Lawyer” is another prestigious honor that is awarded to lawyers who have demonstrated exceptional skill and expertise in their field. Like being recognized as a Super Lawyer, being named a Best Lawyer is based on a comprehensive evaluation process that considers a lawyer’s experience, achievements, and other professional credentials.

Having lawyers at a law firm recognized as Best Lawyers and as Super Lawyers can indicate a high level of expertise in providing exceptional legal services. It can also signal to potential clients that they can expect a certain level of quality and professionalism from the firm and its lawyers.

The firm also earned five top rankings among Cleveland law firms, recognized regionally by Best Lawyers, part of U.S. News and World Report.
