Lawyer of the Year Designation Awarded to Denver Attorney
Denver, CO – October 7, 2019 – Denver law firm, Foster Graham Milstein & Calisher (FGMC) is proud to announce that John Chanin has been included in the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America© by USNEWS & World Report as “Lawyer of the Year” for Litigation-Banking and Finance.
“We are thrilled, but not surprised, that John was recognized by his peers as Lawyer of the Year,” said FGMC managing partner Dan Foster.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly noteworthy. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments.
Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
“I am humbled, obviously,” said Chanin. “This award’s significance doesn’t get lost on me or the firm. I work hard, take my work seriously, but I never would expect to earn this recognition from my peers. I practice law because I am passionate about the work and the clients I can support. This award is simply a huge honor for me.”
In addition to the “Lawyer of the Year” award, John Chanin was also listed in the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the practice area Criminal Defense: White-Collar in Colorado.
John joined FGMC in January 2018 from a large regional law firm. He is a trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience in complex business litigation, financial fraud, governmental investigations and white-collar defense.
