Forty-Eight Hodgson Russ Attorneys Named to Various Best Lawyers Listings

Press Release
August 15, 2018

Forty-eight Hodgson Russ attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in various “Best Lawyers” listings.

Hodgson Russ is also pleased to announce four of its attorneys have been honored as 2019 “Lawyers of the Year.” They include: Benjamin M. Zuffranieri, Jr., Kenneth P. Friedman, Peter C. Godfrey, and Terrence M. Gilbride.

The names of all 48 of Hodgson Russ’s included attorneys follow, along with the practice area or areas in which they are listed in the guide.

Because Best Lawyers is based on an in-depth, peer-review survey in which attorneys cast votes on the legal abilities of lawyers outside their firm who practice in the same legal and geographic areas, inclusion in Best Lawyers may be considered a singular honor.
