The eight Thomas Jefferson School of Law professors named as "Top Attorneys" by the San Diego Daily Transcript in its annual peer voting recognition program were honored, along with other 2012 Top Attorney finalists, at a reception hosted by the business and legal news publication on Monday, July 30. TJSL Professors Thomas Golden, Julie Greenberg, Marybeth Herald, Luz Herrera, Alex Kreit, Brenda Simon, Jeff Slattery and Kenneth Vandevelde are finalists in the “Top Attorneys in Academics” category, capturing 8 of the 11 peer-selected spots in that category.

According to the newspaper, The Transcript conducts a peer voting process to determine the “best and brightest” lawyers in 14 categories representing private, corporate, academic and government practice.  The categories have been selected to represent the main areas of law practiced in San Diego County.  More than 6,000 email invitations were sent to San Diego attorneys, resulting in more than 800 nominations.

Nine TJSL alumni and one TJSL Adjunct Professor also made the Top Attorney finalists in various categories.  Andrew Dunk ’86 earned enough peer votes to merit recognition as a Top Attorney in two categories.  TJSL alumni Top Attorneys and their categories are: 

James Matthew Brown ’81, Personal Injury/Property Damage

G. Cole Casey ’96, Criminal Law

Andrew Dunk ’86, Insurance and Personal Injury/Property Damage

Joshua Gruenberg ’92, Personal Injury/Property Damage

Matthew J. Liedle ’86, Insurance

Rebecca Lack Mowbray ’86, Insurance

Brett J. Schreiber ’05, Personal Injury/Property Damage

The Transcript announces the finalists in its Top Attorneys awards program each year in a special supplement and on the Transcript’s website.

Congratulations to TJSL’s professors and alumni who are San Diego’s 2012 Top Attorneys!
