33 Pullman & Comley Attorneys Named to 2020 Best Lawyers® List

Pullman & Comley LLC is pleased to announce that 33 attorneys have been included in the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, constituting more than 40 percent of the firm’s members and nearly a third of its attorneys. In addition, four of the firm’s attorneys were recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2020 "Lawyer of the Year" in their practice area and location.


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. For the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, 8.3 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in recognition of approximately 5% of lawyers in private practice in the United States.


Within the Best Lawyers in America list, 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. 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.


Pullman & Comley would like to congratulate the following attorneys recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2020 "Lawyer of the Year" in the practice areas and locations listed below.

Campbell D. Barrett – Family Law (Hartford)
Andrew A. Glickson – Land Use and Zoning Law (Stamford)
Jonathan B. Orleans – Litigation – Labor and Employment (Stamford)
Stephen M. Sedor – Labor Law – Management (Stamford)

Note: The metropolitan area location categories are assigned by Best Lawyers and may not reflect the Pullman & Comley office where these attorneys most commonly work.
