Attorney Brian D. Einhorn has been recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2017 Legal Malpractice Law – Defendants “Lawyer of the Year” in Metro Detroit. This is the third time Einhorn has received such recognition. He has also been previously been listed as a Best Lawyers “Lawyer of the Year” for his work in Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants (2016) and Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants (2014). Einhorn is also one of eleven attorneys within the firm who have been listed in The Best Lawyers in America©2017, recognized for his work in the fields of Legal Malpractice Law – Defendants, Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants, and Product Liability Litigation – Defendants.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has been regarded the definitive guide to legal excellence, and is cited as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice” by Corporate Counsel magazine. Best Lawyers has since partnered with U.S. News®, the leading rankings publication in the U.S., to rank law firms in the United States. Best Lawyers is based on an extensive peer-review survey in which more than 79,000 leading attorneys cast almost 6.7 million detailed evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Because lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored for their outstanding accomplishments 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, including high marks in the areas of professionalism, talent and integrity. This is the seventh consecutive year that attorneys at Collins Einhorn have received the prestigious “Lawyer of the Year” recognition.
“The firm is proud of Brian and his many notable accomplishments within the legal field,” stated Neil W. MacCallum, Chairman of Collins Einhorn.
Einhorn has been at the forefront of legal issues affecting lawyers, judges, courts, businesses and insurers for more than 40 years. He has litigated numerous court cases and disciplinary proceedings that have shaped Michigan law – with issues ranging from lawyers’ potential liability to clients for defamation, to judicial candidates’ free speech rights. He continues to apply his considerable experience and expertise to complex professional malpractice, disciplinary, product liability, insurance coverage, and catastrophic personal injury litigation.
Einhorn has been recognized through numerous awards and accolades throughout his distinguished career, including the Earl J. Cline Award for Excellence by the State Bar of Michigan Negligence and the Excellence in Defense Award by the Michigan Defense Trial Counsel. He is the Past President of the State Bar of Michigan, and served as an Officer on the State Bar’s Board of Commissioners for over 10 years.
