Aug 9, 2010 | News

Pittsburgh, August 10, 2010 — Five Burns White attorneys have been selected for the 17th edition of Best Lawyers in America® for 2011. The Pittsburgh attorneys honored were Michael W. Burns, for Commercial Litigation, Media Law and Railroad Law; David A. Damico for Railroad Law; Daniel B. Donahoe for Railroad Law; and David B. White for Medical Malpractice Law and Personal Injury Litigation. From the firm’s Wheeling, W. Va., office, Patrick S. Casey was recognized for Healthcare Law, Medical Malpractice Law, Personal Injury Litigation and Professional Malpractice Law. This marks the ninth consecutive year Mr. Damico has received this honor, followed by Mr. Burns and Mr. White (five consecutive years) and Mr. Donahoe and Mr. Casey (four consecutive years). Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. None of the winners knows when he or she has been nominated or by whom. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 39,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.1 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not 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.” It is important to note that the lawyers listed in Best Lawyers have no say in deciding which practice areas they are included in. They are voted into practice areas entirely as a result of the votes they receive from their peers. The subspecialties listed after their names are based on information from a variety of sources.
