GREENSBORO, N.C. – J. Scott Dillon, a director and shareholder with Carruthers & Roth, P.A., has been named 2013 Greensboro Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law “Lawyer of the Year” by The Best Lawyers in America® 2013. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant.
At Carruthers & Roth, Dillon has a broad-based business, tax and estate planning practice, with a particular emphasis on buying and selling businesses and the development and management of qualified retirement plans and employee benefits. His clients include a wide variety of closely-held, family-owned businesses – from medical practices to construction firms.
Lawyers being honored as “Lawyer of the Year” are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments we conduct with thousands of leading lawyers each year. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
Best Lawyers® is one of the oldest and most respected peer-reviewed publications in the legal profession. Best Lawyers® compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.
About Best Lawyers®
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers® is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 39,000 leading attorneys cast over three million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, and because lawyers are not required or 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 specialties they are included in. They are voted into specialties 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.
