Additionally, Leon Rittenberg III was recognized by Best Lawyers® as the 2018 Non-Profit/Charities Law “Lawyer of the Year” in New Orleans. “Lawyer of the Year” rankings are awarded to one lawyer per practice area and region.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. For the 2018 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 7.4 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 58,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore 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.”
