“Only five percent of attorneys statewide are selected,” said ECJ Co-Managing Partner Barry MacNaughton. “It’s especially meaningful when that praise comes from our peers at competing law firms.”
MacNaughton emphasized how the honors mirror the high standard of excellence that the firm’s attorneys set for themselves. “We’re honored to be recognized for the work we perform on behalf of our clients,” he said.
