Dinse PC announces that twelve of its attorneys were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in the The Best Lawyers in America 2019 (Copyright 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc, of Aiken, SC) in nineteen different practice areas. Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
