Three Bluestein Attorneys partners named to Legal Elite for 2020

August 3, 2020

Columbia Business Monthly has named three partners with Bluestein Attorneys to the 2020 Legal Elite of the Midlands. The recognition honors attorneys in the Midlands whom their peers consider outstanding in their respective practice areas.

All three have been honored in this annual list before. They are:

• Marti Bluestein, Workers’ Compensation
• Clarke Newton, Personal Injury and Criminal
• Allison Sullivan, Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation

Columbia Business Monthly began publishing the Legal Elite feature in 2010. The selection process begins with nominations from more than a thousand active lawyers in the Midlands. While attorneys are allowed to nominate members of their own firm, for each in-firm nomination there must be a corresponding out-of-firm nomination. Attorneys are not allowed to vote for themselves.

Attorney votes then narrow the nominees down to the top 10 in each of the practice areas.

“We very much appreciate receiving this recognition for our hard work, both from our peers and by Columbia Business Monthly,” said Founding Partner Margaret Miles “Marti” Bluestein.
