Susan Link, Chair of Maslon's Estate Planning Practice Group, is honored as one of Worth
magazine's "Top 100 Attorneys" in the December 2007 issue. The "Top 100 Attorneys," now in its Third year, results from of a year of exhaustive research performed by Worth's editorial staff and recognizes outstanding expertise, insight, trustworthiness and commitment to clients' needs.
staff "searched for those who can think beyond the numbers and routine of their daily work," explained Worth Features Editor Emily DeNitto. "We wanted to know what types of strategic recommendations our nominees have made. We asked how they are responding to current trends and pivotal cases. We then examined their years of experience, time spent both behind a desk and in front of judges, as well as their thinking concerning the best and worst qualities for a lawyer in their field."
focuses on attorneys specializing in trust and estates, philanthropy, elder care, matrimonial and other private practice areas. In addition to seeking individuals with exceptional legal expertise, Worth editors looked for lawyers with great tact, discretion and stellar interpersonal skills, enabling them to explain a client's options in the face of incredibly complicated legal and psychosocial issues.
