The Best Lawyers in America© 2015 Recognizes 21 Attorneys from Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp and Names 2 Attorneys “Lawyer of the Year”

August 2014

Mitchell Silberberg is pleased to announce that 21 of its attorneys across 15 areas of practice were recently honored in the 2015 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©. This edition of the Best Lawyers® guide includes 18 lawyers from Mitchell Silberberg ’s Los Angeles office, two lawyers from the firm’s Washington, D.C. office and one lawyer from the New York office. Further, two Los Angeles-based partners have been distinguished as Best Lawyers® 2015 "Lawyer of the Year”: David Wheeler Newman and Russell J. Frackman.

“The recognition of a large number of our lawyers is gratifying, but it’s especially impressive that this list includes lawyers who work in a diverse range of practice groups and are based in all three of our offices,” said Thomas Lambert, managing partner of Mitchell Silberberg. “This independent endorsement of our firm illustrates that we’ve assembled a talented team of attorneys who aggressively represent our clients in virtually all industries and from coast-to-coast.”

Best Lawyers® selects lawyers based on exhaustive and rigorous peer-reviews which comprises more than 5.5 million confidential evaluations. Because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers© is considered a singular honor. The Best Lawyers in America© Guides have been, for more than thirty years, one of the most visible peer-review publications in the legal profession. For more information, visit
