Klemensic, shareholders at Knox McLaughlin Gornall & Sennett, P.C., were recently honored as Best Lawyers® 2015 “Lawyers of the Year” for the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, in Public Finance Law and Medical Malpractice Law — Defendants, respectively. The honor follows their inclusion on the 2015 Best Lawyers list, along with eight other Knox attorneys.

According to Best Lawyers, only one lawyer in each practice area in a designated metropolitan area is honored as “Lawyer of the Year.” These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of leading lawyers each year.
