Birmingham, Mich. – November 4, 2021 – Steinhardt Pesick & Cohen, P.C. (SPC), a Michigan-based law firm specializing in eminent domain and condemnation, commercial property tax appeals, commercial real estate litigation, and land use, has been listed in the U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® 2022 Edition of “Best Law Firms.” In the newly-released annual publication, SPC received the highest Tier 1 rankings at the metropolitan level in three categories:

  • Commercial Litigation
  • Eminent Domain and Condemnation Law
  • Real Estate Law

The U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that encompasses a collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer reviews from leading attorneys in the field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. To be eligible for a 2022 Best Law Firm ranking, the firm must first have at least one lawyer recognized in the 27th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America®, which recognizes 5% of lawyers practicing in the United States.

The 2022 Edition of “Best Law Firms” includes rankings in 75 national practice areas and 127 metropolitan-based practice areas. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity—and signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.

In August, managing shareholder Jerome P. Pesick was selected by his peers for inclusion in the 28th edition of The Best Lawyers in America® in the practice areas of eminent domain, and condemnation law and real estate law. He also received “Lawyer of the Year” honors in the practice area of Real Estate Law – Troy, Michigan. Presented to individual lawyers with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region, only one lawyer is recognized as the “Lawyer of the Year” for each specialty and region. Pesick has received “Lawyer of the Year” honors six times since 2011.
