Rebecca L. Smitherman has been selected by her peers for inclusion in the 24th edition of The Best Lawyers in America for her work in elder law & trusts and estates.
The Best Lawyers in America was first published in 1983. Since then, the same tried and tested peer review process has been used consistently for more than thirty years. While the scope and scale of this publication has dramatically grown over the past three decades, the core mission of Best Lawyers to highlight the top legal talent in America has remained unchanged. The 24th edition highlights the top 5% of practicing attorneys in the U.S. and is organized by state, city, and practice area for readability.
