Rodney Norton named “Lawyer of the Year” in Portland area |

Categories: 1970s | Award or honor | Professional or career event

Two attorneys from the Hart Wagner law firm were singled out in the newly released 2016 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Rodney Norton was selected as 2016 “Lawyer of the Year” for Legal Malpractice Law — Defendants in the Portland area. Janet Schroer was selected as 2016 “Lawyer of the Year” for Appellate Practice, also in the Portland area.

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. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer-review assessments conducted by Best Lawyers. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and in the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.

In addition to earning the Lawyer of the Year award, Norton was listed in the 2016 edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the following practice areas:
• Ethics and Professional Responsibility Law
• Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants
• Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants

Schroer was cited in the following additional areas:
• Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants
• Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants

Eight more attorneys at Hart Wagner were honored in the 2016 guide, with some receiving recognition in multiple practice areas:
• Troy S. Bundy: Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants
• John Hart: Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants; Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants
• Matthew Kalmanson: Appellate Practice
• Steve Kraemer: Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants
• Karen O’Kasey: Ethics and Professional Responsibility Law; Legal Malpractice Law – Defendants; Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants; Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants

• Michael Wiswall: Ethics and Professional Responsibility Law; Legal Malpractice Law – Defendants; Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants; Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants

Since it was first published in 1983, The Best Lawyers in America has become known as the most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
