Raleigh—(Nov. 2010)  Roger W. Smith, Sr., of Tharrington Smith, L.L.P., has been selected as the “Raleigh Best Lawyers® Appellate Lawyer of the Year” for 2011 by Best Lawyers of America®.  Smith has appeared on Best Lawyers’ lists since 1983.  This distinction is highly regarded in the law profession as it is an award based on extensive, confidential peer-review surveys completed by thousands of leading lawyers in each field. 

“Lawyers of the Year” are selected because they have received particularly high ratings from a majority of their peers during the past two annual surveys.  The current edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011) is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by their professional peers. 

“We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession,” said Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers®.  “We would like to congratulate Roger Smith, Sr. on being selected as the ‘Raleigh Best Lawyers® Appellate Lawyer of the Year’ for 2011.
