August 26, 2015

GTTC is proud to announce that five of its attorneys were selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2016 edition of The Best Lawyers In America®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. For the Seattle area, Dale Kingman and Jeffrey Tilden were named as “Lawyer of the Year” for Insurance Law and Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants, respectively.

GTTC also was the Top Listed firm in Seattle and Washington state in Insurance Law.

Best Lawyers® compiles its lists of attorneys by conducting peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and in each community surveyed is selected as a “Lawyer of the Year”. Top Listed designations are awarded to firms with the most listed lawyers in a particular region and practice.

Since publication began in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as an important guide to legal excellence. This 22nd edition of Best Lawyers (2016) includes attorneys in practice areas covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 6.7 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
