Six attorneys at Woodburn and Wedge, Nevada-based independent law firm, have been named to the 2013 edition of “The Best Lawyers in America.” The guide is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. Honorees include: Gregg P. Barnard (corporate law, and mergers and acquisitions law), Gordon H. DePaoli (natural resources and water law), John P. Fowler (corporate law), Shawn B Meador (family law mediation), John F. Murtha (bankruptcy and creditor debtor rights/insolvency and reorganization law, and bankruptcy litigation), and Don L. Ross (tax law, and trusts and estates law). All six honorees are shareholders at Woodburn and Wedge.
Those named to the “The Best Lawyers in America” list are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be included. Therefore, the list is widely regarded within the legal profession as a singular honor, conferred on a lawyer by his or her peers. For more than 25 years, the lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.
