Boca Raton, Fla. – Sept. 27 , 2013 – The law firm of Gladstone, Weissman, Hirschberg & Schneider, P.A. is pleased to announce that partners Jeffrey A. Weissman and Peter L. Gladstone have been named to the 2014 edition of Best Lawyers ®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.

With offices in Boca Raton, Fla. and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Gladstone, Weissman, Hirschberg & Schneider, P.A. specializes exclusively in the discreet handling of complex divorce and related family law matters with expertise, integrity and compassion.
Best Lawyers ® has published its list for over three decades, earning the respect of the profession, the media, and the public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals. Its first international list was published in 2006, and since then has grown to provide lists in over 65 countries.
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. Lawyers being honored as “Lawyer of the Year” are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments Best Lawyers ® conducts 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 the most effective tool in identifying critical legal expertise,” said Best Lawyers ® President and Co-Founder Steven Naifeh. “Inclusion on this list shows that an attorney is respected by his or her peers for professional success.”
Lawyers on The Best Lawyers in America ® list are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.
