Best Lawyers names two Lanier Ford attorneys as 2023 Lawyers of the Year

Two Lanier Ford attorneys have been recognized as Lawyers of the Year in the 2023 edition of Best Lawyers in America. David J. Canupp was named Lawyer of the Year in the area of Appellate Practice, and George E. Knox, Jr. was named Lawyer of the year in the area of Medical Malpractice Law (Defendants).

Recognition by Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer review. The Best Lawyers methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical region and legal practice area. Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services. Best Lawyers believes the quality of its peer-review survey is directly related to the quality of its voting pool.

Additional recognitions are also awarded to individual lawyers with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region. Only one lawyer is recognized as the Lawyer of the Year for each practice area and location.
