Five Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. attorneys became part of the 223 New York metro area real estate attorneys to receive Super Lawyer honors. Law & Politics magazine identified the top 5 percent of attorneys in the New York Metro area based on an independent survey of nearly 90,000 attorneys. Sixty-two percent of the lawyers selected are from firms with more than 75 attorneys. The list was published by the magazine and in a supplement in The New York Times. Law & Politics performs the polling, research and selection of Super Lawyers in a process designed to identify lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selection for Super Lawyers is particularly noteworthy as ballots for the directory are sent to every lawyer in the state who has been licensed to practice for five years or more. The attorneys who made the list were nominated by their peers and were selected based on peer recognition and professional accomplishments including verdicts and settlements, transactions, representative clients, experience, honors, awards, and a blue ribbon panel review and independent research.
The five attorneys include Adam Leitman Bailey and Colin Kaufman who have been named Super Lawyers for 2012. Courtney Lerias has been named Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” for 2012.
