Deborah Reiser Named 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” for Family Law by Best Lawyers
Family law attorney Deborah Reiser recently was selected as the 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” for Family Law in Washington, DC by Best Lawyers in America. 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. Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
Deborah Reiser is a divorce attorney who practices in Maryland and the District of Columbia. She is increasingly concentrating her practice on mediation during which, as a third-party neutral, she assists parties in reaching negotiated – not litigated – resolutions. Bethesda Magazine writes, “After 40 years in the family law business, no mediator is held in higher regard than Deborah Reiser.” (“Untying the Knot,” Bethesda Magazine, July/August 2017)
