We are pleased to announce Founding Partner Philip C. Federico has been named the 2014 Baltimore Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers®. Mr. Federico’s selection marks the second year in a row a member of Schochor, Federico and Staton received the honor, as Kerry D. Staton was recognized as “Lawyer of the Year” in 2013.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is named “Lawyer of the Year,” making it a particularly significant accolade. Mr. Federico’s selection was based on the impressive voting averages he received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments Best Lawyers® conducts with thousands of leading lawyers each year, and receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect he has earned among others in the legal community for his abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
In addition to Mr. Federico’s “Lawyer of the Year” award, the firm’s four other partners, Jonathan Schochor, Kerry D. Staton, James D. Cardea and Scott P. Kurlander, were named Best Lawyers® for their professional reputations and excellence in the field of medical malpractice law.
