In addition, Partner/Director Greg E. Bloom was honored as the Long Island “Lawyer of the Year” in the area of Health Care Law. Best Lawyers selects only one attorney with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region as their “Lawyer of the Year,” making this recognition especially noteworthy.

Recognition by Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer review. The methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area. Attorneys in the “Ones to Watch” category are extraordinary attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice.
