Lightfoot Attorneys Named Best Lawyers’ 2010 Lawyers of the Year
Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named William S. Cox III as the “Birmingham Best Lawyers Environmental Lawyer of the Year” for 2010 and Samuel H. Franklin as the “Birmingham Best Lawyers Bet-the-Company Litigator of the Year” for 2010.

The current, 16th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2010), is based on more than 2.8 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
