Lawyers of the Year 2009
The men and women selected as Lawyers of the Year for 2009 include an attorney who won a record-setting verdict against the tobacco companies, a lawyer who fought for gay rights in Iowa, and the man who took the reins for the ABA as it tried to keep the FTC's "red flags rule" from applying to the legal profession. All made news in their profession and earned the title Lawyer of the Year.
