MARTINSBURG, WV -

Walter M. Jones III, managing shareholder of Martin & Seibert, has been named a 2014 Lawyer of the Year by "Best Lawyers in America," along with firm's Susan R. Snowden, E. Kay Fuller and Michael M. Stevens. 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.

Lawyers of the Year recipients are selected based on voting averages received during peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of leading lawyers each year. 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.

Jones, Snowden, Fuller and Stevens all were identified for their work in Insurance Law, Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions — Defendants, Personal Injury Litigation — Defendants, Product Liability Litigation — Defendants and Workers' Compensation Law — Employers, Mediation, Appellate Practice, Commercial Litigation, Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights, Insolvency and Reorganization Law, and Commercial Finance.

The firm has offices in West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia.
