 Flaherty Sensabaugh Bonasso PLLC is pleased to announce that twelve of the firm’s lawyers have been selected for inclusion in the 2015 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©.

Additionally, five Flaherty Sensabaugh Bonasso lawyers were named as Best Lawyers® 2015 Lawyers of the Year. Only one lawyer in each area of practice is honored as “Lawyer of the Year” in their community. Lawyers honored for 2015 include: Andrew B. Cooke for Product Liability Litigation - Defendants (Charleston, WV), Jeffrey A Holmstrand for Product Liability Litigation – Defendants (Morgantown, WV), Edward C. Martin for Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants (Charleston, WV), Don R. Sensabaugh, Jr. for Personal Injury Litigation - Defendants (Charleston, WV), and Jeffrey M. Wakefield for Insurance Law (Charleston, WV).

Best Lawyers, based on a peer-review survey, has been compiled annually since 1983. Leading attorneys cast votes on the capabilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Because of the methodology used by Best Lawyers and because lawyers are not permitted to pay a listing fee, inclusion is considered an honor. The American Lawyer has called Best Lawyers “the most respected list of attorneys in practice.”
