Forty-five Foster Swift attorneys included in Best Lawyers

Forty-five lawyers from Foster Swift Collins & Smith PC, were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in  The Best Lawyers in America 2014 (Copyright 2013 Woodward/
White, Inc., of Aiken, SC). Eight attorneys were included from Foster Swift's Grand Rapids office: Frederick D. Dilley - Arbitration, Mediation, Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs; Scott H. Hogan - Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law, Litigation – Bankruptcy; Todd W. Hoppe - Tax Law; Lawrence Korolewicz - Insurance Law; Jack A. Siebers - Corporate Law; Thomas R. TerMaat - Insurance Law; Lynwood P. VandenBosch  - Corporate Law; and Paul D. Yared - Corporate Law, Insurance Law
Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five 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.
