MOBILE, Ala. – Best Lawyers in America® recently honored Robert T. Cunningham and Steven L. Nicholas as “Lawyers of the Year” based on peer-review ratings that ranked each as one of the best in their specialty:

• Robert T. Cunningham was named the Best Lawyers’ 2013 Mobile Bet-the-Company Litigation “Lawyer of the Year,” and

• Steven L. Nicholas was named the Best Lawyers’ 2013 Mobile Litigation – Construction “Lawyer of the Year.”

Through these distinctions they have proven to be consistent and dedicated members of the law community.

Since it first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
