Lawyer of the Year

Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant.

Lawyers being honored as “Lawyer of the Year” are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments we conduct with thousands of leading lawyers each year. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.

Best Lawyers® began designating “Lawyers of the Year” in the U.S. in high-profile legal practice areas in 2009. Since then, we have extended this honor to many other countries where the Best Lawyers peer-review process is conducted as well.

We continue to believe — as we have believed for over 30 years — that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. The Editors of Best Lawyers would like to congratulate all of the lawyers who have been selected as “Lawyers of the Year” for 2015.

Medical Malpractice Law - Defendants
(2015, New York City)

I have had the extreme privilege and distinct honor to work closely with Jay Rappaport for the last five years. I consider him to be the consummate professional and one of the most competent, skilled, and savvy trial attorneys in his specialty area in the New York City metropolitan area. I have been fortunate enough to work with Jay through all phases of the most complex medical malpractice litigation, including at trial in the courtroom. The level of his preparedness, his mastery of the medical and legal issues specific to each case, and his jury appeal have led to great successes for our insurance program and its insured.
