M&S Attorneys Recognized by 2020 Best Lawyers in America
Congratulations to M&S Attorneys Helen Mac Murray, Michele Shuster, and Betty Montgomery on their inclusion in the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America!
This marks Partner Helen Mac Murray’s sixth year achieving this recognition in the area of Government Relations Practice. A former Chief of the Ohio Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section, Helen has been a leader in the consumer protection arena for almost 25 years, and now uses her experience and insights to focus on the defense of state, federal, and multistate consumer protection investigations.
Partner Michele Shuster has been recognized for her achievements in Consumer Law. Also a former Ohio Consumer Protection Chief, Michele brings almost two decades of experience in consumer protection with a particularly extensive background in the teleservices industry. She advises highly-regulated businesses on a wide range of privacy, advertising, and other consumer protection issues and provides representation in matters before the FCC, FTC, and state attorneys general.
Former Ohio Attorney General and Of Counsel Attorney Betty Montgomery has been recognized in the area of Government Relations Practice. Betty 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. Her 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.
We are especially proud to share that Betty has been additionally recognized as “Lawyer of the Year” in Government Relations Practice. This ranking is awarded to only one attorney per practice area and region and is regarded as an exceptional distinction.
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, 8.3 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in the inclusion of 62,000 leading lawyers. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
