White Arnold & Dowd Named Shareholders Included in the 20th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America


Birmingham, AL – White Arnold & Dowd P.C. is pleased to announce that its three named shareholders, J. Mark White, Stephen R. Arnold, and Augusta S. Dowd have once again been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 20th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Mr. White was named in the practice areas of the Bet-the-Company Litigation, Commercial Litigation, Criminal Defense: White-Collar, Litigation – Environmental, Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants, and Mediation. Additionally, Mr. White was named the Best Lawyers’ 2014 Birmingham Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants “Lawyer of the Year,” an honor awarded to only a single lawyer in each practice area in each community annually.

Mr. Arnold was recognized in the Family Law practice area, an honor he has been awarded annually since 1983.

Ms. Dowd was selected in the practice areas of Commercial Litigation, Litigation – Environmental and Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants.  In 2011, Ms. Dowd was named the Best Lawyers’ Birmingham Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants “Lawyer of the Year,” a distinction Mr. White now shares.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.” The Best Lawyers in America© 2014. Copyright 2013 by Woodward/White, Inc., Aiken, SC.
