March 2006 – The law firm of Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC is pleased to announce that eighteen of the firm’s lawyers were listed in the March issue of Louisville Magazine for their status as Best Lawyers in America Â® 2006 . In addition to the eighteen lawyers listed, Kendrick R. Riggs, utility/energy attorney and Vice-Chair of the firm’s management committee, was featured on the cover of the magazine and described as a “top lawyer.” Craig Dilger, a Louisville attorney with a focus on white collar criminal defense and civil litigation trial work was named by circuit, district and family judges in Jefferson County as one of the best trial lawyers under age 40.
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which 16,000 leading attorneys throughout the country cast more than a half million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
