In addition to being listed in the 2019 Edition of Best Lawyers William J. Bryant and Judy B. Shepura were also recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2019 “Lawyer of the Year” in their respective practice areas in the Birmingham 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.
Bill was named as “Lawyer of the Year” for Tax Law and Judy for Trusts and Estates. 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.
