Stein Sperling principals Millard Bennett, Dave Driscoll, Ann Jakabcin, Paul Stein and Steve Widdes were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2014 (Copyright 2013 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC).
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become regarded among the definitive guide to legal excellence.

Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
