Best Lawyers has named Steven M. Gursten a 2017 Michigan “Lawyer of the Year.”
“Lawyer of the Year” and Best Lawyer recognitions in Michigan are awarded to individual attorneys with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific legal practice area. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and legal community is honored with a “Lawyer of the Year” award by Best Lawyers.
Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey of nearly 41,000 leading attorneys, who cast 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers. Those selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America do not pay a fee to be listed. In other words, other lawyers vote for their peers, and unlike many superficial legal honors in the legal industry today, it is not “pay for play.”
