Congratulations to Helen Mac Murray and Betty Montgomery on their inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2019! This marks Helen’s 5th straight year receiving this distinctive recognition; both attorneys were recognized for their extraordinary accomplishments in the area of Government Relations Practice.
Since its first publication in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence, with its selection methodology based on an exhaustive peer review process. For this most recent edition, 7.8 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in the inclusion of almost 60,000 leading lawyers across 145 practice areas.
Former Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery is Of Counsel to M&S. She has earned a national reputation for her consumer protection work, and today focuses her practice on helping clients understand and meet their regulatory compliance obligations and representing them before state regulators across the country. Betty’s distinguished career in public service includes 26 years in elected positions and a number of “firsts,” including Ohio’s first woman Attorney General and first woman Auditor of State.
M&S Founding Partner Helen Mac Murray has been a leader in the consumer protection arena for 23 years. As former Chief of the Ohio Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section, she uses her experience and insights to focus on the defense of state, federal, and multistate consumer protection investigations. In addition to her defense work, Helen frequently advises clients on proactively managing their compliance obligations, successfully identifying issues that only a trained “former regulator eye” will catch.
