Fairfax, VA, United States — August 20, 2021 – Frei, Mims and Perushek partner Steven M. Frei was recently voted by his peers as 2021 “Lawyer of the Year” for Medical Malpractice – Plaintiffs law in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region.
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. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer-review assessments.
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.
All three partners of the firm were recognized by the 2021 Best Lawyers roster. Gary Brooks Mims, who earned the same Lawyer of the Year – Medical Malpractice accolade in 2017, was once again named to the 2021 roster.
Partner Matthew Perushek was voted by his peers to Best Lawyers’ inaugural Ones to Watch roster for 2021. Recognition by Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch recognizes lawyers who have been in practice for 5-9 years and is based entirely on peer review. This award process employs the same methodology that has made Best Lawyers the gold standard for legal rankings worldwide.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
