Five Meissner Tierney Attorneys Named as Best Lawyers

September 19, 2012

Meissner Tierney congratulates Joseph Tierney, Thomas Nichols, Randal Brotherhood, Michael Cohen and William Stuart for being selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2013 (Copyright 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC).

The Meissner Tierney attorneys selected for inclusion and the practice areas under which they are listed are as follows:

  • Joseph Tierney – Tax Law; Trusts & Estates
  • Thomas Nichols – Tax Law
  • Randal Brotherhood – Corporate Law
  • Michael Cohen – Commercial Litigation; Insurance Law
  • William Stuart – Commercial Litigation; Litigation – Real Estate 


Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, 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.”
