“I feel incredibly honored to have been selected again. Being selected for Best Lawyers is really extraordinary, because I share this award with some of the finest lawyers I know,” said attorney Jonathan Bobbitt. “At the Gilbert Firm, we all strive to do the best we can for our clients. Whether it’s an employment issue or a policyholder, many of the people I work with come to me in a real state of fear: they fear termination, they fear retaliation, they fear where they will live, they fear how they will earn a living or whether they can protect their family. That’s an awful burden to carry, and I consider it my duty to help them understand their rights as it relates to their employers and insurance carriers. I feel very grateful to be included once again.”

About the Best Lawyers in America Award

Best Lawyers in America “is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession…. For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.” This year, more than 7.3 million attorneys, practicing in 140 areas of the law, were nominated for inclusion. Fewer than 1% of all nominated attorneys were ultimately selected for this year’s list.
In order to be considered for inclusion, an attorney must either be nominated by an outside party, or have been nominated in the previous three years. Attorneys who have previously been reviewed or accepted for inclusion previously are not guaranteed a place for the following year.

All nominees are reviewed and evaluated by current Best Lawyers members, who then pass those evaluations along for a final calculation. If the results are high enough, nominees are then vetted to ensure that they are in good standing with local bar association(s). The firm is then notified of the attorney’s selection for inclusion.

• Employment and Labor Law
